Yeah, We could call
But then, is that sufficient?

7.5.8 Battery Temperature Out-of-Range Detection
Battery temperature out-of-range detection detects whether the battery
temperature is within a specific
range. Detection is possible for two temperature ranges. When the
battery temperature is not in the
2–50°C range or is in the 3–43°C range, the TBATOR1 and TBATOR2 status
bits rise and an interrupt is
This MADC monitoring function can be enabled by writing to the
TBATOR1EN (BCIMFEN2) and
TBATOR2EN (BCIMFEN2) fields.
Battery pack at high temperature is a risk, no? and it may not be just
charger that might be causing such a condition. Is'nt it safer to shut
the device down in such a case?
