With the Li-Ion battery, you will see a steady yellow-red phase on your battery meter for about the last 1/2 mile. For proper travel distance planning you need to observe early signs of battery weakness, typically occurring during the last 2-3 miles. There is a brief switch from green to yellow on inclines or when accelerating from a stop, and returning to green when reaching normal driving conditions. Also keep in mind that a battery in this state of discharge is more prone to an overload shut-off.

What happens when the battery is getting low
I definitely overloaded the battery, because I got no warning. This is what the manual says happens when the Lithium Ion battery is running out of power. Your assignment is to go read ALL your battery manual, so you can learn from my experience. :-)
