Postby hernando » Mon Dec 15, 2014 1:00 am

Hello,

Whats the availability of the 2AA cased chargers? Have all the backers orders been fulfilled and are any chargers available for sale?

Im looking for 2 super high quality 2AA eneloop chargers for my suntactics scharger5 panels. Paul hasnt blogged and I cant seem to get any response by email.

Paul is working on a redesign of the non LCD charger - unfortunately, I don't think he has any of the current design available at the moment - sorry.

Hi Mark

I just received my LCD 2-cell charger from Paul
He informed me that it is the last he intends to sell (I was a kickstarter sponsor)...

He also said that you might still be working on firmware for it, and that I should contact you directly.

I would be interested in testing new firmware if you are looking for a guinea pig...

Let me know what I need to apply firmware updates - is it possible to load firmware via the USB port, or do I need a programmer? (If so, do you have any that you recommend?)

cheers

Hi John,

Yes, I'm still working on the firmware.

Hopefully I'll have a new firmware version ready for early testing in the next week or 2. I'll get in touch with you when it's ready for testing - if you don't hear back from me though, feel free to chase me up in case I forget to get back to you.

With the LCD charger, you don't need a programmer at all - you just program it directly through the USB port.

If anyone else is interested in trying the next test version, please get in contact with me!

Hi,

Units are being built and sent from Paul's workshop in the US as far as I know.

I don't think the charger is available to the public yet, as the kickstarter fulfilment isn't quite finished. I am backer 222 of 270, and Paul has sent my charger a week or so ago, so fulfilment isn't far from being finished.

Received my charger

My charger was received a couple of days ago. It is hardware only, no doc/instructions of any kind were included. I'm at a loss of where to start learning what I've got and how to use it. Is something coming soon? Or does it already exist? Any pointers welcome.

Hi Russ,

The quick start and user guide linked to from the UltraSmartCharger web site should be useful for you:
http://ultrasmartcharger.com/

They're actually written for the first version of the charger, but they mostly apply to the V3 charger as well. I believe that Paul is working on updating the guides for the current version of the charger.

So, I'm not on the kickstarter list...are the units shipping to regular purchasers yet?
If so, what is the backlog time please?
