Suggestion for include in new firmware was created by Adamj12b
I was wondering if it would be possible to write into the new firmware a voltage cutoff on the power side of the controller for use with lipo batteries. I was thinking that the controller can monitor the voltage of the battery and reduce current to the output stages of the the controller when the battery gets low as to not over-discharge the battery and render it useless. With all the advancements in batteries lately i have been looking into using some 14.8 volt 10000mAh lipo batteries for my rover project but at almost 300$ a piece I am very nervous about using them and accidently over discharging them. Also it would be nice to be able to turn this feature on and off in roborun and adjust the sensitivity values and cutoff voltages. This is just a suggestion of mine, to try and make your controllers the best. -Adam

Thank you for for the suggestion. It will be considered for our next design currently under study.

Note that it will not be possible to cut the power entirely as the MCU does not have the ability to cut its power supply.
