Presumably also, if its an input stage to an isolated SMPS, and the oputput of the SMPS is earthed, then that also bypasses the input filter common chokes/capacitors.

### Closed: Re: Battery cutoff voltage vs 0% battery voltage

if its a lithium battery then it may well have a circuit in it which stops you from being able to discharge it further down than 3v.
If not then you should put one such circuit in there.
But yes,...

In Buck-Boost you will tend to get more switching losses as your fet off state voltage will gernerally be higher.
Also, the rms fet current will be higher with a buck-boost.
