INJOINIC IP5518V is a multi-functional power management SoC integrating 5V boost converter, lithium battery charging management, and battery power indicator, providing a complete power solution for TWS charging case. The high integration and rich functions of IP5518V require only a few peripheral components for application, effectively reducing the size of the overall solution and reducing the BOM cost.
IP5518V has a voltage resistance of 30V, provides intelligent two-way communication compartment applications, and can provide open-cover connection functions.
IP5518V has a built-in 5V output, synchronous rectification boost DC-DC and built-in power tube, which provides a maximum output current of 300mA and a boost efficiency as high as 93%. The switching frequency of the DC-DC converter is 1.5MHz, which can support low-cost inductors and capacitors. The linear charging of IP5518V provides a maximum charging current of 500mA, and the maximum charging current can be flexibly configured. Built-in IC temperature and input voltage intelligently adjust charging current function.
IP5518V can detect that the earbuds are placed in the charging bin and automatically enter charging mode. The earbuds automatically enter sleep state after being fully charged, and the quiescent current can be reduced to a minimum of 20uA. The earphone full and saturated current can be flexibly customized, and the full current detection accuracy is as high as 1mA. IP5518V has a built-in MCU, which can flexibly customize 4/3/2/1 LED or 188 digital tube power display. Built-in 12bit ADC can accurately calculate battery power.
2.2μH power inductor works with the power management chip.
The motherboard connects to the FPC’s ZIF connector.
The bluetooth pairing function button on the FPC is connected to two indicator lights on both sides of the FPC through ZIF connectors.
The silk-printed “AR3W7” Hall element at the end of the FPC is used to sense the magnetic field changes of the earbuds, and then notify the charging case MCU and earbuds to pair or disconnect from the connected device.
LED indicator light provides light source for the lights on the charging bin.
02/ Baseus Bowie E5 Earbuds Teardown
Remove the earbud stem back cover. A touch detection patch is fixed inside the cover.
The internal structure of the earbud stem cavity – the mainboard unit is fixed through positioning posts, and there is an FPC on the left connected through a ZIF connector.
Take out the motherboard unit. There is a charging connector at the right end of the cavity, and the microphone pickup hole is protected by a dust filter.

Metal dome for connecting touch detection patches.
Connect the ZIF connector to the FPC.
Disassemble the sound cavity and fix the battery inside the back cavity. Magnets are provided on the cavity wall for adsorption and fixation with the charging case. There is a speaker inside the front cavity.
Take out the battery and wrap it with high-temperature insulating tape for protection.
Tear off the insulating tape and you will find the steel-cased button battery built into the earbuds. Model: M1040S2, nominal voltage: 3.85V, energy: 0.135Wh, from MIC-POWER.
Take out the speaker. The speaker uses a PEEK+PU composite diaphragm and is designed with electroplating color technology.
There are tuning holes around the back of the speaker, which are protected by a silk screen to improve audio performance.
After actual measurement, the speaker diameter is about 12mm.
All components of Baseus Bowie E5 true wireless earphones.
Baseus Bowie E5 incorporates transparent elements into the design, presenting a unique visual effect. The round charging case adopts a translucent frosted shell, which is compact and lightweight. The earbuds use the transparent front cavity and translucent earbud stem cover design, which is highly recognizable and very light and comfortable to wear.
The charging case has a built-in 330mAh lithium battery.
