I am designing battery charger and I want to know how to calculate max charging current for a lithium-ion battery pack. I am using Texas Instrument Chip bq24616 and their evaluation board.
Assumption: Battery pack has- 5 in parallel and 4 in series of 18650 batteries include onboard BMS.
Base on the datasheet of the battery:
Each cell is 3.7V 2500mA
Standard Charge current 500mA
Battery pack = 14.8v 20AH
Is that mean max charging current is 5 x500mA = 2.5A
