Thanks, yes, shipped on the 25th, and yours was the first international batch to ship, so looks like it takes at least 7 days. No real difference from the usual International airmail. It used to be quicker pre Sept 11th.

#00225 arrived in Austria this morning  :clap: Thanks, Dave! Special thanks for the banana jacks! I might upload a picture, when I come home from work.

Btw:
Haven't tried if that works, but mounting the board upside down in the case with the lid on top, might give some extra protection during travel and save you bubble rap.

Didn't think of that!, will try it. Although the screws would need to be taped down or bagged.

#00118 arrived in Hong Kong! Probably would have arrived sooner if the package wasn't opened and examined by our customs (no fees/tax as HK is tax free for importing pretty much everything). Thanks Dave!

Sorry Eric, you will have to wait for the end of the run, when the KS units are done and there is stock left over for retail.

S/N #108 made it to the Netherlands today. Thanks for banana plugs and the extra battery holder! That means I can use three AAA batteries, which also means a supply voltage of 4.5V. That shouldn't be a problem right? :D

At 4.5V the Batt OK LED current will exceed the maximum specifications of the TPS3809 voltage supervisor IC.
