LTC1760CFW I2C comms with arduino

Pages 15 and 16 of the LTC1760 datasheet show a breakdown of the I2C comms.  This looks pretty clear, but I must be interpreting it incorrectly.  I can see there is a device on node 0x0A (surprisingly not 0x14, 0x16, or 0x18 as shown in the chart), but my attempts to send a command are not instigating reply data.


 In a nutshell, I am attempting

Wire.begin(8);      //join with address of 8

Wire.beginTransmission(0x0A);       //send info to address A

Wire.write(0x04);    //send command code 4 for BatterySystemInfo()

ackCheck=Wire.endTransmission();    //verify Ack of address


When monitoring the address afterwards, I see no reply, whereas I am expecting two bytes.


Would someone be willing to explain if the layout of the command is more than sending a byte to the appropriate address.  Is the layout of the response more than two bytes?
