I discovered that my plans to change the threshold alert voltage from 3.0V to 3.1V were not going to happen because it was already set to 4.0V. I wanted to increase it because I didn't have long between when my battery was low and when it would expire. Since I've added a larger unit, I'll try it for a bit before making any program changes.

There were still issues with program malfunctions, and they caused the vibrating motor to get stuck on, so I wanted to add a small switch to disable everything. I found a little unit, but I had to straighten two of the 90° pins, clip off a third, and remove a mounting bracket. Once the mods were complete, I added it to the circuit, and it worked. I flashed the most recent code, and the system resumed working.
