  • Synchronous operation: completely turn off the output
  • 2 A internal switch: Get 1000+ mA from a 3.7 V LiIon/LiPoly
  • Onboard 1 A iOS resistors: Plug in any iOS device for 1000 mA charge rate
  • High efficiency: 90+ % operating efficiency
  • Low quiescent current: 5 mA when enabled and power LED is on, 20 uA when disabled
  • Full breakout for battery in, control pins and power out

Adafruit, to make the charger even more useful, stuck a smart load-sharing LiPoly charger. This charger is powered from the microUSB jack and will recharge any compatible (3.7 V / 4.2 V) LiIon or LiPoly at a max rate of 1000 mA.  There are two LEDs for monitoring the charge rate.

Thanks to the build-in load-sharing, it will switch over to the USB power supply when available.
