Animated Battery Dial Hiccup

Firstly let me say thank you TOMAJA for the wonderful tutorial on animated batteries. This is a very easy to understand tutorial. I have a question about the battery dial version.

I have done everything that you have suggested but have noticed an anomaly. When testing the indicator with time lapse, at 4 mins to midnight, the dial hand returns to the upright 12 position rather than remaining at empty and then going straight to full.

To explain it using your pictures, the hand is placed in the dial at the 12 o’clock position. The ±150 work perfectly, but at the 4 minutes to midnight the dial goes from empty to 12 o’clock position and sits there until midnight and then moves to the full position. Have I done something wrong?

Thanks in advance.

There is a known bug for the tag you are using …

And, try this: (or similar)

$#BLN#>2?(your formula):2(+offset to start)$
