I am tinkering with the Monitor One and as a stress test I charged the 18650 LiPo and then unplugged the AC adapter to see how long the Monitor One would last running the stock Monitor Edge application firmware. It appears that it lasted approximately 84hrs before browning out.
Unfortunately, after I plugged the AC adapter back in and let it charge up for a few hours; it appears to be stuck in a unrecoverable state. I haven't had a chance to exhaustively try and recover it. But it looks like it may be a similar problem that the Electron had.
I have a problem connecting an electron to the cloud following a battery test where I completly drained the battery.
In the draining test, I was running a script that used deep sleep and woke up every 15 minutes, turn on cellular, publish to the cloud, and turn off before going back to deep sleep.

We have investigated this since the first report without success in reproducing, and after seeing more reports we ramped up the investigation yet again with little success. This is a top priority for us at this time, and since this issue rema…
@t.gaze, sorry you are having an issue with your Monitor One. Are you able to share some logs from the device?
I had the same issue on my Tracker One as you can follow up in this thread:

The status LED pulses white (indicating turned off cellular connection?) but nothing is printed on the serial monitor.
Pressing the reset button brings it back to normal operation but on the packaged version installed in a vehicle I don't have access to the port.
It seems like no code is being executed and that's why I don't where…
If you haven't done I can only recommend checking out the fix that was released. Maybe you can apply it to your system, too.
