Hello my friend,
I have bought a lipo fuel gauge (based on max17043 chip) on Ebay but it not working....
I have connected SDA with SDA's Arduino, SCL with SCL, GND, VCC to +3.3V (I use 3.3V Arduino) But not working, the chip seem to don't respond. I have try wuth several libray -> same result // several lipo fuel gauge board -> same result, other arduino -> same result.
And I have tested with a board from SparkFun --> All is working (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10617)
But I have several module from ebay and I want to use them !
This is the output with the library mentionned abose:
MAX17043 Example: reading voltage and SoC
Voltage: 5.0000V State of charge: 256.00%
Other example sketch:
MAX17043 Example: reading configuration values
Version: -1 Compensate value: 0xFF Alert treshold: 1% Alert triggered: YES
Have you some ideas of the problem ?
