Just had an idea! I could program the ardunio to only charge the first 15-20 seconds the brake light is on. It would be rare for one to brake for a longer time than that.

This would allow me set the tilt sensor more aggresivally to only charge on steeper hills, but still allow charging even with mild braking.

I would also allow me to use an solid state tilt sensor
