    Description

    The MAX1879, in conjunction with a P-channel MOSFET and a current-limited wall-mount adapter with an output voltage between +4.7V to +20V, allows safe and quick charging of a single lithium-ion (Li+) cell.

    The MAX1879 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a complete, fully assembled and tested Li+ battery charger. Jumpers on the EV kit allow easy adjustment to a +4.1V or +4.2V battery regulation voltage. A light-emitting diode (LED) indicates the cell's charging status.
