    Folks,

    In the past I've used MAX1555 (LDO charger for a single Li cell) with success for charging the Li-polymer batteries. Now I have a board with MAX1555, which was originally designed for Li+. I'd like to reuse the board in another project, but unfortunately, my time, budget and space constraints don't allow Li+ battery pack. What will happen, if I charge three (3) Ni batteries with MAX1555? The nominal voltage would be +3.6V: about the same as one Li cell.
