I'm working with the BQ27742-g1 (Texas Instruments) Fuel Gauge.

I have some confusion about battery parameters.

What is Qmax and Design capacity? Are they the same or different?

What is the configuration value for Qmax and Design capacity if my battery is single cell 4600 mAh?

Design Capacity 1000 mAh Set based on the nominal pack capacity as interpreted from cell manufacturer's datasheet. If multiple parallel cells are used, should be set to N * Cell Capacity

Qmax Cell 0 1000 mAh Set to initial configured value for Design Capacity. The gauge will update this parameter automatically after the optimization cycle and for every regular Qmax update thereafter.

Seems self-explanatory from the datasheet above
