Recharging Li-ions in parallel Answered
Hi I am new to rechargeable cells.For my application, I need 2 Li-ion cells (LIR2032) in parallel to increase the capacity. I am using NCP1835B charger IC . Can I use the same IC to charge them while they are in parallel. Is there any extra protection circuitry to be used? What happens if the 2 cells are at different voltages initially ?Will the trickle current bring one of the cells to proper voltage while not affecting the other one?
