I have 5 batteries and have this issue no matter which one i use.

I will mow the lawn and sometimes the problem surfaces within 1 minute or 30 minutes. Last night, it happened ~10 times.

When i push the mower the battery has a solid green light, sometimes the light will turn off and back on, I don't want to say blinking as it is not uniform on how it turns off and on.  When this happens either the battery goes back to a solid green and i continue to mow with no issues. Other times the mower will slowly power down. Starting it back up sometimes works, other times i need to open the battery compartment, hit the eject button and put the battery back in. Sometimes that fix works for 10 minutes or 30 seconds.

I checked my green clips and it looks like I have the newer ones.

Brian, an easy check to see if it’s the clamps is to pull the mower instead of push it. If it only shuts down while pushing, the clamps are not holding properly.
