Evening all,

I have a Lipo battery attached to my MRK GSM 1400.  I'm looking to use it for battery backup should the main power go off.  It runs fine from the battery but i'm a little unsure of how it manages the battery.  I tried it the other day and it ran perfectly for about 32 hours then just hung, i don't know if it was a power issue or a cell (mobile phone cell not battery cell) issue...

What happens when the battery gets low, does it turn off to save damaging the battery?  If so what happens when power is returned, does it charge for a bit then turn on again?  How long should it take to charge, 2500mAh in my case?

Actually, just noticed my charge led flashes whether the battery is plugged in or not...
