We have had some user's reporting the following symptoms when using the UPS PIco:

* UPS PIco Not Functioning e.g. No shutdown when power removed
* Battery Not Charging

The majority of these were solved by following every step of the install procedure outlined below:

Please ensure that installation is completed on a brand new up to date distribution of Raspian (https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/), and that all packages are installed including the email broadcasting package.

Ensure that there are no other devices or scripts running on the Pi at all when investigating UPS PIco function.

Ensure that you are using a stable and tested power supply

Please Note. Old UPS PIco scripts will not work with newer PIco's as many registers have been changed. Please ensure that you only use scripts and code available on the UPS PIco Github repo - https://github.com/modmypi/PiModules/wiki or that officially released by ModMyPi or PiModules.
