In a system and method for charging a rechargeable battery having a protection circuit, the rechargeable battery operates according to a model that includes an ideal battery and an internal resistance. In the model, an electrode voltage develops across the ideal battery. An internal voltage drop equal to the difference between this electrode voltage and the battery voltage is developed across the internal resistance. The battery is charged with a charging voltage that may exceed the threshold voltage and the electrode voltage. The charging system and met...
[ We claim:] [1.] A method of charging a rechargeable battery, the method comprising:(a) providing a battery pack comprising:(1) a plurality of terminals for accepting a charging current, a first voltage being developed across the terminals;(2) a rechargeable battery, coupled to the terminals, a second voltage being developed across the rechargeable battery, the rechargeable battery operating according to a model comprising:(A) an ideal battery, a third voltage being developed across the ideal battery, the third voltage reaching an end-of-charge voltage ...
