I am building this solar powered inverter: https://ibb.co/58m5L8B using a 12V, 0.8 Ah battery as the input source and a CD4047 IC for the inverter. However, the resistors connected to pin 2 are rated at 0.5W and the IC has a maximum power dissipation of 500 mW. I want to keep the efficiency of the system as high as possible. Would I need to limit the input current to the CD4047 IC?
