As I was trying to understand how BeagleBone Blue is handling battery management, I encountered a battery protection IC (S-8261).
- How does S8261 prevents overcharging and overdischarge? (ELI5)
- BQ29209 and MP2615 also have overcharge and discharge protection, why would you need an aditional IC (S8261)?
Battery out (V_BATT) is directly connected to motor drivers (TB6612FNG).
- What's point of feeding the dc motors with a non-constant voltage(V_BATT)?
