Anyone drained their lithium battery down to zero?

Curious to hear what happens when you run completely out of juice.

There's at least 1 thread here reporting on fully discharging to a dead high-voltage battery. Look through the previous posts and you'll find it/them.

I was wondering specifically if there is a few miles of reserve charge that is being underreported.

Yeah, that was me...

In my case I got about a mile farther after being told that the charge was depleted and to pull over safely, but that was going uphill. I'm thinking that there's maybe a half kilowatt or less in "reserve".

Very useful information. At least I know that I'll be able to pull over safely. Thanks
