That's pretty lame. But I understand. It's operating off a standard lead acid battery. If you drain it to nothing a few times it'll kill it.

I run an AGM deep cycle battery designed to be drained and recharged many times for my inverter.

Ya, there's that too.

A better idea would be an optional battery with a battery isolator.
