Yes, I understand that but if one cell for example stops working then it will trigger the alarm yes, but the voltage have then dropped down to a 2 cell battery, not a 3 cell with 50% charge and that's way lower voltage.

When it comes to the electronics that can fail, well these are a handful of components compared to all the ones that are in all the other equipment that also can fail so that's not an issue really."

The thing is that it is a slightly more complicated solution that can be achieved by other electronic components but it will not take care of all the things a switchover circuit can handle. If it's worth it? Well, perhaps, perhaps not, but it is a nice project never the less.

Just for the sake of it, this is the final solution with flash and beeper.
Mostly for fun of building it.


Main circuit.


Auxiliary circuits.
