What is the function of lithium battery internal circuitry?
I mean when you open a lithium battery pack there is a small PCB with a couble of SMD ICs and some other components. I beleive this is used to record the state of charge of the cells and control the charging in case the temperature of the cells rises.
Is this true or it offers other

You really need to find out what kind of bettery you've got first. lithium Polymers can only be charged/recharged a certain number of times before they have to be changed. Most mobile phones I have examined have NI-MH.

You must limit the charge on each cell to whatever is the max shown on its datasheet to prevent a fire. When the voltage of each cell reaches the max allowed voltage then the charging should continue until the current drops below what is said on its datasheet. Then the charger must turn off.
