I'm curious, I've read about this phenomenon and the speculation, but does anyone have evidence the chips inability to properly display the battery voltage has any effect on it's ability to function? Or more importantly is there any evidence the issue will result in the battery being over discharged? Because one is a serious issue and the other is just a superfluous function. If it still registers a "low voltage" error and shuts down it's almost a non-issue.

I've heard people claiming that theirs have deep discharged batteries whilst it was on standby. Naturally the source for this is 'some guy on the internet', but even if that's unsubstantiated, it's got a battery level indicator on the screen, and most of them work. Back pedalling and saying that this is not a feature of the product is frankly class A bullshittery even for Cloupor.

That is bullshit
I have the Cloupor T8 and apart from the shit 510 it's actually ok('same 510"as in the mini)
They had to design a chip,for it from scratch so it works really well. The mini is flawed at best.
Everyone should know
nothing to see here

It's ridiculous though; a working mini is truly a thing of joy - I love mine to bits - but this latest pathetic attempt to shirk responsibility for their poor design/QC/whatever, pretty much trumps all that. I'd miss it of I did return it, but this has gone far enough. I STAND WITH YOU ALL, lol.

I am getting a good idea of battery life a after a few days of use and have been doing a 'manual' battery level check by removing and replacing it. On mine this shows the present level and is accurate when checked with my other devices and meter.

But what a fucking hassle....when it is a function that is supposed to be a benefit. I will not let the battery deep discharge because it will be changed out at about 30% left.

-Late,

Not real happy with lame response's I have received from CS when I buy and have bought 99.9% of my gear here for 1.5 yerars. I never bitch or have sent an item back which most would have. I just make necessary modifications because I am good at fixing and making things better ie: MODDER.

Yet cloupor have said elsewhere that the mini isn't capable of being user updated - which is it?

I'd also suggest that there's a significant difference between "it isn't faulty, so screw you", and "it IS faulty, but you can fix it yourself with a firmware update". That's not confusion.

$10 says the firmware update will only be available for Windows... $5 there won't be a firmware update.

You're getting evens on the last one, and 7/6 on the former.
