Documentation for FuelGuage and PMIC


I was wondering if there are any plans to add to the documentation for Fuel Gauge and PMIC for the Electron (See Fuel Gauge and PMIC).

Those libraries look very interesting and useful but the docs are quite lacking.

Would be very happy to see more information about the different functions and their uses!

Thanks very much,

Most of the most changed parts of those two libraries are sprinkled around the forum so if you’re interested in seeing how they are used you’re going to have to use the search function to dig them up.

Usually, people just want to adjust the charging current, input voltage limit, and charging voltage.

It’s true that the most common operations are fairly self explanatory.

That said, this being an official Particle library, you’d expect the documentation to be complete.

I don’t mean to be difficult, but I really think this is valid criticism.

I think it’s more that it’s baked into the firmware and they really would rather these settings not be messed with unless you know what your doing since the wrong settings could cause damage or overheating or less than desirable performance.

Definitely agree that it should be polished. :wink:
