UPS pico battery type 0x43

Post by xload » Fri Jun 14, 2019 9:00 am

Hello,

When I read the i2c 0x6B 0x7 register (battype) I obtain 0x43, according to the manual only 0x46, 0x51, 0x53 and 0x50 are allowed, what is happening? I'm using a Li-ion battery.

Best regards

The battery is not charging correctly, I think that the 0x43 it the problem, Li-Ion I think that this option would be configured as 0x50, please confirm this :)

Best regards and a lot of thanks

Depending on what model of pico you have. depends on what the register should be set to.

Could you let me know your order ID, so I can double check which model you have please.

We ordered to RS Online, was faster to deliver in Spain. How can I check the model?

You'll need to set your battype to 0x50 for lipo
