Invalid Power State When Charging

Post by donalhe » Sat Aug 12, 2017 8:35 pm

Hi There,
I'm testing my PIco HV3.0A with the 0x38 firmware running on it, and am seeing some unusual results for the power state.

I'm getting the following battery state, battery capacity, battery voltage and pi voltage, while the battery is charging.
You can see that the battery is constantly toggling between Battery powered and RPi powered. Is this to be expected?
Also, while this charging appears to switching on and off, the CHG LED always remains off, I would have expected it to be on while charging.

Code: Select all
