I designed this Li-ion charging circuit so I could select my own maximum
charge voltage (so I could get a better service life out of the cell by
charging it up to only 4.0V or less). At the same time, I can fine tune the
maximum charge current. This method (constant voltage with current limit)
models (as far as I know) the normal method for charging Li-ion (constant
current until a certain voltage is reached, then switch to a constant
voltage).

I would like some suggestions for it as I'm pretty sure there are a few
things to improve.

* The chip in the middle is a high side current sense amplifier.
* The voltage source on the left is my best attempt at modelling a Li-ion
battery. It gains voltage as it's being "charged" (DC operating point
stepped to increase voltage).

* Graph:
** cyan: power dissipated by the MOSFET
** blue: current through r_sense and the battery
** red: MOSFET gate voltage
** green: voltage across the "battery"

Questions:

* I placed C2 (next to the MOSFET) to smooth out the gate voltage and give a
more "analog" signal so the MOSFET can control the current better. Thoughts
* I chose a MOSFET instead of a BJT so I can get the full 4.0V out of the
charging voltage source. Thoughts?
better? Is the whole concept here stupid to begin with?
* Is C1 (above the opamp) too large a value? I was suggested a value of
around 50pF a while ago while designing using a similar circuit block, for
opamp voltage output stability. Note that there's also C2 (beside the
MOSFET) as well, which I believe serves the same purpose

Anyone? :
Perhaps if you post a valid link somebody will respond.

I don't understand. The link http://solarwind.byethost7.com/cc.png is
working for me.

In any case, here's another link: http://i.imgur.com/cNX8X.pn

This one worked.

Nope, just tested it on a random university computer and it works fine
untrusted sites.

Probably this site is blocked by many of us either on the ISP side or in the
company's firewall / router / proxy or whatever.

How would you define a "trusted" site?

This website is as legitimate as any other

OK, then again: The site is sharing the IP address with many other websites,
many of them are parked domains, but many others are malicious, or phishing
etc -- I ask the same question from you: How do you define trusted?

Maybe, but as it shares IP with non-legitimate ones you can expect that
security experts are ruling out every singe site coming from that place --
aka blocking it's IP address entirely.

It is not my trouble what you are using, I only wanted to warn you that the
site is dodgy and it is your interest to move your stuff to somewhere
else... again, not my problem as I have my Websense gateway protecting me
;-)
