ESP hackers, what is your preferred method for dealing with the charging voltage of a lithium ion based battery? I haven’t tried it, but I suspect the 4.1-4.2 volt charging voltage would place undue stress on the esp. Using a simple LDO between esp and battery is easy, but the dropout voltage wastes power… Buck converter would work, but not much headroom… What other options are there?
