...my first one has shit the bed. :/
Seems the chip ain't that great for longevity. I've used it daily since it's release, and I woke yesterday morning to a flatlined battery and the chip wakes but is no responsive. Bone dry inside too. Grrr....



I'll be in and out.

Thanks for this. I've been curious as to how well these would hold up. Did you use the usb to charge the batts through the device? I'm guessing not, but have to ask.

That board would be hard to retrofit with something decent. Maybe they will come out with' new and improved'.

Exactly the reason I've held off getting this

Hi rangermsr, you're welcome =)
Nope, never used it's USB port.
It's strange how it had some low voltage pull while it was turned off during the night enough to completely kill the battery. I put a fresh battery in and it powered on, but does nothing. Crap chip is all I guess. =(
I have a couple others in different colors, and I remove the batteries now at night lol.
I've brainstormed how to use the chassis having not one chip or device I could steal from that would even kinda fit.
I'll probably at some point just make it into a semi-mech type situation. I have a couple old iJust minis with bad switches I could steal from and make it work I think.
Speaking of new and improved, I've heard twice now that in later batches a V2 chip was used. But I've not been able to confirm that. ...mine are all 1st batch for sure.
I'd wait a bit longer my friend... ;)

I'll be in and out.

Yup. My advice is to wait a bit more.
It really is my perfect mod, in all aspects. I just hope my others hold up long enough to see a better made version of this exact design. Hell, if they released a better/more reliable chip on it's own I'd be first in line. It's super easy to retrofit cuz it's all press-fit. Maybe a dab of solder on positive and negative and you're up and running with a fresh overhaul.
I'll be in and out.

I'll probably still pull the trigger soon. I love the form, and I know it would fit me. Maybe you just got a lemon with that one. It's always a crapshoot :)
