After about 15 minutes operation of the Maestro on Battery, I get a Battery warning even if the battery is fully charged. I clear it and all is OK until the Battery is really low. I see this with my Polanfo and Magix batteries.

Anyone else see this?

This is not a problem with the Maestro, per se.  The LiPo battery banks have internal voltage regulators that are supposed to provide a constant 5 VDC throughout the discharge cycle.  Some batteries, allow the voltage to drop below 5VDC when the battery is mostly charged and when this happens, Maestro detects the low voltage situation and displays the warning message.  We plan to modify the logic in Maestro to be a little less sensitive to this situation, but ultimately the root cause of the issue is with the battery itself.  As long as you know there is a good charge on the Battery, you can ignore this message.
