I am newby in electronics. I planning to design a 4s2p (3.7 V, 3000mAh) li-ion battery pack and a charger. I want to use TI BQ series (BQ24618) ICs for charging. I know we can charge battery pack with 14.8V+ DC.
Can we charge the battery pack also from a USB (5V) input. I would like to know how is it possible to charge a large battery pack like 4s2p from USB.
Thank You. Edit: thanks for your answers. Lets say we made a similar design with this, Do we need boost input voltage to 4*3.7V? DEsign looks like accept 5v for charging.
