Charging lithium battery while at the same time trying to use circuit didn’t quite workout, with problems like the circuit not turning on and the battery never finish charging.
The battery is 3.7V and capacity of 300mAH.
However I found the microchip app note on same issue.
When USB power is applied at
Vin this circuit will turn off
Q1, and then the load will instead use power from USB through
D1. This allows the battery to charge normally without any outside disturbances.
Q1is P channel MOSFET, but I am not able to understand the connection. Why source is connected to load and Drain connected to Vbat? It should be reverse.
Which MOSFET should I select for this circuit? If my Load Current is 100mA max? What should be the Rd (on) and VGS(th) of the MOSFET which I can use in above circuit? Any suggestion for the part number
I am considering this P-Channel MOSFET DMP1045U http://in.element14.com/diodes-inc/dmp1045u/mosfet-p-ch-w-esd-12v-sot23/dp/2061526
I am considering Diode B130LAW :- http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/887879.pdf?_ga=1.83230549.251839788.1488841003
Also D1 is to prevent current flowing from the battery into the charging power source.
D1 should be a schottky diode. The reverse leakage current of D1, which could be up to a few hundred microamp (schottky diodes are very leaky).
This leakage current will create a small voltage at the MOSFET gate which, if high enough, could cause the MOSFET to not turn back on properly when the main
Vinpower is removed. How to overcome this?
