In many applications, we will use lithium batteries as our power solutions. In this kind of application, the most two important things are the power boost and battery charger. These two points are a prerequisite for the system. The traditional power boost and battery charge circuit are usually divided into two separate parts, the circuit will be relatively cumbersome to build.

The Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) MP2636 is highly-integrated, flexible switch-mode battery charger with system power path management, designed for single-cell Liion or Li-Polymer batteries used in a wide range of portable applications. It is really simple to use, once you plug a lipo battery, it will work like a power bank. When there is an external power supply from VIN, it will charge the battery automatically, and the CHG led will light up; when there is no external power, only battery on battery port, the Boost will be ON.


  • Charge mode input voltage (VIN): 4.5-6.0V
  • Boost mode output voltage (VOUT): 5V
  • Suitable for battery voltage: 4.2V (3.7V lithium battery full of 4.2V)
  • Charge mode Maximum charge current: 2.5A
  • Boost mode Maximum output current: 2.5A
  • Switching frequency: 600KHz
  • Charging mode efficiency:> 90%
  • Boost mode efficiency:> 90%
  • Support battery overcharge protection
  • Temperature protection: more than 150 ℃, automatic power failure
  • Size: 35 * 30mm/ 1.38 * 1.18inches
  • Weight: 12g

    • IoT Plant Monitor
    • So, my wife wanted to have some small plants in the house. I didn’t, so we compromised, and got some plants. The only thing is that neither of us remembers to water them, so I wanted to build a sensor array to monitor the moisture content of the soil, and notify us when they needed watering. We’ve got 3 plants, all fairly close to each other, and I wanted to create an IoT project so that it could send an email notifi...

    1. Review by Adrian verified purchaser

      As described, works well (Posted on 14/06/2018)

    2. Review by Armen verified purchaser

      I did quite a bit of research on this prior to purchasing and am glad I did.

      This is the perfect module for anyone who has a project they would like to be mobile. The really nice part is that you can charge your battery whilst powering on your project, too. So you can have it plugged in when at home and just unplug it to take your project out and about. The output power is never interrupted when you connect or disconnect input power.

      There are two LEDs on the board, which, if you really want to save power, can be de-soldered. If you want to be able to monitor when charging has completed and the LEDs are not visible (inside a case, etc) you can simply solder a lead from the LED's supply and that will provide about 3v for your MCU to read. The voltage will drop when charged.

      All in all, this is a great product and inexpensive for what it does. (Posted on 5/11/2017)
