I noticed the day of the tournament we made so many revisions and practiced so much that the robot was dead by the time of the match. Luckily we had a second robot with another battery. But the stress of changing it at the last second was nerve racking. This year we are avoiding this by using AA batteries.
It is not uncommon. My experience has been that when the battery starts to die, it's time to replace it. FWIW, our annual FLL budget now includes the funds to buy a new battery each year.John
