Well, frankly, no, I didn't but 10 seconds work with Google and
I'd found a document that explained enough for me to have a good
idea what HDQ meant in the context of Lithium batteries.
And did you figure out that it has nothing to do with this thread?
Took less time to find out than it did for you to start a flame
Your mother started a flame war, Linthead.
Doubt it's a TL431. Doubt it's a voltage reference at all. More
likely a temperature sensor or even a simple fuel gauge IC.
More likely you are just a troll, Linthead. I used a digital
microscope, it has "431" printed on it, it is a three pin surface
mount device, and "Google" will tell you that they are used in
current regulation circuits.
Or, perhaps, if it's a digital I/O it could be a streaming data
On a common flashlight, between the battery and the bulb?
But seriously, Linthead, apparently you did not read the original
post either. I am not talking about a CHARGER, I am talking about
a SMALL CIRCUIT BETWEEN THE BATTERY AND THE BULB. I spelled that
out, you just didn't care to read it.
And then there is that thing up there in the subject line that
looks like this "DISCHARGING".
Good oh, so you do know how to use Google.
Probably better than you, Linthead, and I am grown up enough to
call it something other than "Google". Please stop, you sound like
a cave dweller.
Perhaps next time instead of spending time abusing people trying
to help you,
You and he might act like babies, but you do not have the same
excuse... If you run around carelessly spewing half-baked
misinformation, trying to send people you do not know on wild
goose chases, you should not be surprised when you are abruptly
questioned by someone who recognizes a wild goose chase.
FWIW, that paragraph tells you enough about HDQ for you to
realise it's likely not what's on your battery unless it's got a
*very* smart charger.
If you had read my original post, Linthead, you would know that I
am not talking about a charger.
You are much safer talking about anything but the subject,
Linthead, since you are defending someone who did not read the
Season's greetings, perhaps you could let some of the spirit of
the season infuse you with some goodwill towards fellow men?
