    Hi I am designing a circuit that is battery powered but which also has a mains supply to enable the battery to be charged. Can anyone recomend an IC or method to enable me to charge and control the charging of the battery to prevent the battery being damaged.

    All help and advice greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Most chargers use a thermistor to monitor completion if anything at all..

    The kind of battery involved is pretty critical to any answer.

    Most semiconductor manufacturers make battery charger ICs that can be switched to charge most types of rechargeable battery.
