batteries Li-Poly battery charger with protection Schematic review

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

When USB present and device needs to work, VSupply is directly provided by the USB and PMOS separates the battery from the supply. (R3 ensures PMOS is on when there is no USB) Primary reason for this is not to disturb the proper charging of the battery. Especially battery is in 2. 5V level, it needs to be trickle charged to 3V and than maximum

current can be applied. However without separating the battery from the supply, I couldn`t come up with a way to make this work, hence the PMOS. My circuit takes less than 500mA at any given time however I cannot gurantee how much current can be allocated to the battery. This is a point I don`t know how to deal with. How do I guarantee the bulk of the current goes to device and remaining used for charging Should I put a resistor between battery and BAT pin of the IC to increase its impedance so that most of the current goes to the load.
