Re: EVA4100 batteries failed

If the batteries had not been shut off properly, a 'deep discharge' could have killed them. And batteries do discharge over time as well.

Anyway - you do need replacement batteries, because an EVA does not present any virtual disks without at least one working battery and there is no way to work around this behaviour.
