Key Document


The Fuel Tank MKII BoosterPack™ plug-in module is the next generation design of the original Fuel Tank BoosterPack module. It includes next-generation TI battery monitoring ICs and other new features to make it easier to use. It allows TI LaunchPad™ development kits to be powered from the included rechargeable lithium polymer battery, enabling mobile application development and evaluation.

The Fuel Tank MKII BoosterPack plug-in module includes an on-board lithium polymer battery charger and gas gauge that provide critical parameters of the battery, including temperature, charging state, capacity, and more. The BoosterPack module comes with a lithium polymer battery cell, which can be disconnected by a switch, and charged through an on-board micro USB connector.

The battery features of this BoosterPack module can work with any BoosterPack-compatible LaunchPad development kit. However, code examples for using the fuel gauge aspect of the kit to interrogate the battery status are only provided for specific LaunchPad kits.
