What is the PTC stand for and what is it doing?

What is the boost regulator doing? Is this a ready to by component?

I suggest a mosfet to kill the brain stem controller by itself if battery went to low. So you prevent it from destroying the batteries.

The ptc is a resettable fuse all arduino boards have them usually. I think this one cuts at 500ma.

I like the idea of added the mosfet, not sure how I missed that, But as a final shutdown step this is needed. I would like to be able to have the hardware be able to support logic where you can program the shellmo to slowly cut off power to various systems as the battery drains also. This would make shellmo lethargic when he has a dead battery...which could be a neat affect...
