Trouble with a battery usually means not enough volts.
Are you sure there wasn`t a decimal in the readout, and you really had 11.0 volts?

Oh and BTW, welcome to the Vulcan madness!

Its good that you found the problem..... you could have also ran your home electricity with that voltage Make sure that you have a good MF battery now as with that voltage you could have fried it....
