I'm trying to monitor the health of my duracell consumer battery.
Is there an IC that can do this? I've come across the MAX6775, but it appears that you have to use a voltage divider. Isn't this drawing excessive current? This is for a ultra low power application.
Ideally, I'd like to switch on and off the monitor IC every 10 minutes, take a reading and turn it off again so as to minimise power.
Can someone please suggest how to do this/suggest a suitable low-power IC?
Many thanks in advance,
