I'm almost to the point of thinking my batteries are the issue. Thinking of picking up a brand new set today. Just to see if that's what it is. BC good lg's should support way more then 50w.

I'm expecting this to be another situation where the battery contacts are not making good connection to the cells.

I tried that and it said check battery as soon as I hit the button. Lowest I could take it was 3.00v

OK, for sure power isn't getting from the cells to the board. Could be poor cells (probably not), bad solder joint on B+ or B- or at battery sled(lo or at battery sled. But most likely battery contacts to cell, make sure they have as square contact as possible and tight against cell.
