We're in the process of replacing our previous 18650 2S1P Li-Ion charger with a new design based around the LTC4015. It is stated on page 27 of the datasheet subsection 'LTC4015 Charger Algorithmm Overview' that "The 4015 is not a substitute for pack protection".
Our current approach leverages reverse battery protection on each cell using the 'P-Channel MOSFET Design' as outlined in application note AN-171, in conjunction with the Texas Instruments BQ2920 for pack protection.
Does Analog manufacturer a complementary module that provides pack protection?
correction to spelling mistake.
