Some adapters implement a half rectifier topology, which causes the adapter output voltage to fall below the battery voltage during part of the cycle. To enable operation with adapters under those conditions, the bq2407x family keeps the charger on for at least 20 msec (typical) after the input power puts the part in sleep mode. This feature enables use of external adapters using 50 Hz networks. The input must not drop below the UVLO voltage for the charger to work properly. Thus, the battery voltage should be above the UVLO to help prevent the input from dropping out. Additional input capacitance may be needed.
