Hello ADI experts,
I want to charge 8 series Li ion battery pack with LTC4015. I want to use 8 series Li ion battery so I need to 33.6 Volts (When 18650 Li ion batteries are charged, their voltage can reach to 4.2V, 8x4.2V=33.6V) but in the datasheet, Vin max voltage is 35 V. I have to work at the limits (If I am not wrong.), and LTC4015 is a buck battery charger.
Won’t this case be a problem ?
For example, for 33.6V charge voltage, VIN voltage should be min >33.6V. Is this case healthy or available?
Can I adjust Vin for 33.6 V battery pack charge voltage? Is LTC4015 avaiable for 35V Vin – 33.6V charge voltage ?
