Cheap USB LiPo charger notes

Since I use a variety of cells, I wanted to be able to charge at Chip2014under 1A. Most such charge controllers have a single resistor that programs the bulk charge current, so I looked for the datasheet to find what values I’d need for the charge currents I wanted. The chip is marked 4056ES, and there are charge controllers with that number – but they don’t match this package layout. The Ebay ad was titled “5V Mini USB 1A Lithium Battery Charging Lipo Charger Module for Arduino A866″, but I couldn’t find anything under A866, either. It says RD084DY002 on the back, but that’s not helpful either. Rats. (But see update!)

    1. Yeah, they have already figured it out on the author’s page. Wasn’t hard…
      IMPORTANT THOUGH it may be a clone of the TP4056, see comments on the author’s page.
