Yes, that is exactly the behaviour I see.

Well, I bought some new batteries and put them into operation without
charging. Although they were only 40% full, they worked fine and did
not display the power-off behaviour I described. So I think I can
safely assume the old batteries are worn out, or otherwise no longer
usable for the JBR.

Thanks for the advice.

Yes, I love it! My car assembly:
