Hello,

I've got a question regarding the Battery Babysitter. How much current can I savely draw from the Vout pins?
The BQ24075 limits it to 5A, but I cannot find any information if the BQ27441 or other components on the bord limit this value any further.

Thank you in advance.
Just don't want to fry my board.

No current is flowing through the BQ27441 so it really doesn't care how much you're pulling but that being said, I'd keep the output current to 2.5A or less just to be safe.
