Lithium batteries should be called mañana.

As in: "If the battery doesn't get fully charged today, mañana."

Yesterday, on OpticsRE, I saw the SOC graph line go below the battery voltage. In addition to the red light on the Mate3 I would've been freaked out a week ago. This week I'm a happy guy.

I sent in my PHI warranty registration today and received a prompt response and acceptance of the submission. I "punted" on the licensed installer part. Of course its just a paper exercise for now. It matters not until ya have to exercise it. Lord forbid. But if I did, even for one battery of the three, I would theoretically void the warranty on the other two batteries because the bank would be undersized when I sent one in for evaluation leaving the other two to carry the load.

I am truly the pessimist when it comes to warranties. We'll see what happens when we hear of the first issue. It'll probably be me.
