Low voltage detection

My son and I built the MagPi 51 robot, we are using a NiMH 8.4v battery (fully charged about 10.3v)

When the battery voltage gets down to about 6.5v the PiZero randomly reboots without warning, I presume due to the low voltage.

Is there a way to detect when the voltage gets low?

Unfortunately no, the ZeroBorg has no way of detecting what the current battery voltage is.

Our new ThunderBorg does come with battery monitoring though, which could be used to check the battery voltage from the Raspberry Pi.
