Universal lead-acid battery protector
Lead-acid batteries must not be discharged deeply. In the best case, this leads to an irreversible loss of capacity; in the worst case, the likelihood of serious, irreparable damage is great. It is, therefore, rather odd that there are several circuits aimed at protecting these batteries to being overcharged, but hardly any to protect them against being discharged too deeply.
