I bought a mcp73812 charging ic from digikey and I found a circuit online. I don't know much about electronics but I feel like there are issues with the circuit:
First of all it says the green led is powered when the battery is fully charged, but I see nothing controlling it, just goes straight to ground. Second of all I was going through the datasheet and found that when pin 1 is high the chip will charge and when low it won't charge. So in the circuit it's tied straight to 5v, does this mean that it will not stop charging until pin 1 is low? If so how do I do this because I don't want to stand by the battery until it's done charging? And lastly it looks like a pretty simple circuit for charging a battery. Will this circuit safely charge the battery? Thank.
I'm using 1000 mah 3.7v lipo battery
