UPDATE: Very impressed with this setup. Lowest I ever got the batteries during the day was 12.5v . Using the satellite TV does require I turn off the receiver or it draws power during the night. Using microwave was the best thing without generator power. Much less stress overall. Next trip I'm going to run system down below 12v and see how long it takes before a recharge. As for fishing, I'd have to lie and that, I cannot do!

About running down lithium batteries, check owners manual to make sure it won't damage batteries/shorten useful life.

Battleborn website and technicians have confirmed that no damage at all to these batteries. Supposed to be able to fully discharge 3000-5000 cycles and even then, the batteries will retain 80% of their original capacity. That said, they recommend around 11v to go ahead and charge back up.

All batteries do better with shallow discharges. Some can tolerate zero volts (but it is still not the best way for the batteries to live long and prosper).
