I believe, that this is an Issue which can be solved by adding an early alarm and by programming the Firmware not to save anything when the Battery runs below a certain Voltage.
That is a good suggestion. Because we use a filesystem, we can't incrementally update the file in a safe way. this means that if the voltage is not enough for programming the flash, you get the behavior you are seeing now.

I am not sure what an appropriate voltage is. Maybe around 4V for the Devo8?
