Abstract

Typically, battery powered portable communication equipment requires periodic recharging. In most systems it is desirable to maintain communication during this recharge period. In order to provide continued communication while charging, the charger, thru control lines interconnected with the por- table device, is designed to disable high current sections of the portable device while providing duplicate functions to those of the portable device. This minimizes the current requirements of the por- table and in turn reduces the time required for recharging.
