Try running it w/ VR7 turned all the way counter clockwise.  This won't protect your SLA from going too low anymore but SLAs are cheap.  See how long it runs now.

That's an idea. I'm interested in switching back to the Tekkeons if I can, any idea if running that fully counter-clockwise would damage them?

The Tekkeon probably has some sort of circuitry protection to protect itself but I'd check to be sure.

Will do, thanks.

One more thought on this, would I be at risk of damaging the V2 by doing this and then running low?

I doubt it would harm the V2, but it might not perform within it's specs at a lower voltage.

I wouldn't think so but that's probably a question for Mr. Grace.  ;)

Yeah, good call  ;D

We're about to open her up tonight, I think we're going for actually calibrating it. I'll report back.

Any possibility you could take some pictures if its not too late?  No reason really, but just curious what it looks like in there.

All we had was an iphone to shoot it with so not a detailed pic . . .



We did the calibration, then I tested it overnight and it shut down again  :'(  Will call Grace soon and get it shipped out I guess.

Won't you need to do VR7 and VR8?

I could be wrong but I thought VR8 just sets the point where the low battery light starts to flash whereas VR7 controls the actual auto power-down circuit.

Oh right I had only looked at the diagram not actually read the instructions 8)
