Is it enough to replace R3 from 3K87 to 5K to change the charging current from 350mah to 200mAh.

I plan to use a 400mAh LiPo battery instead of the minimum 700mAh batteries recommended.

What I have found is this:

Datasheet (MCP73830)

On page 11, 5.4

  • Ireg = 1000 / Rprog

  • Its now: 1000 / 2,87Kohm = 348,43mAh
  • But I plan to change it to: 1000 / 5Kohm = 200mAh
