    low or weak

    Which one is correct?

    My cellphone's battery is getting low. I should charge it now.
    My cellphone's battery is getting weak. I should charge it now.

    (Talking about a rechargeable toy car)
    Your car battery's getting low. That's why I won't run as fast.
    Your car battery's getting weak. That's why I won't run as fast.

    Edit: which is more natural?

    Re: low or weak

    Both of the two statements about the cellphone are OK.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re the toy car, change 'I' to 'it' and add something else at the end.

    It was a typo.
