Look at abort segment, why did sag persist to surface? Also seemed to have a sag a few days prior too.

undervolts abort.

Checked quickest example I could find ru25 amundsen with alkalines. That voltage sagged 3.5 V from 13V to about 9.5 V It drew a little over 6 A

Previous ru29 deployment at 14.4 V sagged only 1.5 V but pump drew same little over 6 A

Probably 8.5 V is getting low which is upper voltage of 8.5+ 3.5 = 12 V should shallow it up by then.
