The cell balancing switches may be enabled separately from the normal cell balancing cycle. Use the CB_SW_EN[CELL*_EN] bits to select the individual cell balancing switches. Do not select adjacent switches to be enabled simultaneously. Setting the CB_SW_EN[SW_EN] bit enables the selected switches. If adjacent switches are selected, none of the switches are enabled. As with the normal cell balancing cycle, the state of the cell balance switch is read using the CB_SW_STAT register. The manual cell balance switch function does not work if normal cell balancing is running. The normal cell balance cycle must either be stopped, done, or paused. If cell balancing is running, writing the CB_SW_EN[SW_EN] has no effect. Note that the settings are read and the selected switches enabled when SW_EN is written from '0' to '1'. Cell balancing must be paused or disabled and then SW_EN must be written to '0' and then rewritten to '1' to enable the function.
