Could this be systematic of deeper issues? Should I contact Amazon?
I would doubt if there are deeper issues. It is likely the unit is getting confused when the battery is really low. It is trying to work without enough juice. It is not a good idea to just run down the battery. (except once or twice to help calibrate the meter). It is better to keep it topped off. Lithium ION batteries prefer to be topped off. Just charge it and keep it charged when you are around home and then if you need to go somewhere you will know you have maximum power available for the trip.
