Hi, I have a question on your circuit design. I am a bit confused about why you use a 10V schottky diode instead of a regular one. My understanding is that the purpose of the diode is to prevent current from the battery to flow back to the USB connector, but why must it be a shottky?. Wouldn't a regular low drop diode just do it?
Thanks in advance. Reply

@joanlluch: Hi, essential is a low forward voltage of the diode, so a schottky was my choice.
After assembling the circuit on the PCB, I figured out that the BAT60A was not working well – because the leakage current was too high.
When I remember correctly, on battery operation, the Gate voltage therefore was too high, so the MOSFET did not switch on securely.
I replaced it by a NSR0320, which works really fine!

I have just tested this circuit and it is working very well. This exactly was i'm looking for since i'm using the same lipo charger ic. But, i'm facing an issue : I need to know if a USB cable is plugged or not so i'm using the 5V line on your schematics, that goes though a deviding bridge and then to my MCU. But when the USB is unplugged (no 5V input) i can see the voltage of the battery on the 5V line (the Gate). Is it normal ? Do you know a way to fix this ?
