Summary: Well done, guys, a highly recommended mod. The only problem is I'm continually running out of excuses to buy a new bike. Can't wait for the ICEE Cool.

One note for the chronically confused: The little metal clip that holds the connector in place pops up just a bit to release the male side of the plug. If you continue to pry at it with a screwdriver, it will pop off entirely, and it's a bit of pain to put back in place. DAMHIK.
You don't need a screwdriver, there's an easier way!
Thanks for the writeup, JC!


A note about the connector. The little metal clip (for the trivia-minded, it's called a bail) that holds the connector in place is operated by pushing it in with your thumb or finger.




To unlatch the connector, push the wire bail in with your finger.

Haven't gotten any response regarding which stage of production my iice air is in.

Just wanted to see if I was the only one leaving the mailbox daily feeling dejected....
Gee Frank, don't be like that, brother. You get the same information as everyone. You know you're in the third group right?

The discussions and bids for the welding power supply that our team is vying for is submitted. Wish us luck!

The rest of this week's schedule is all IICE Air assembly.

What does living Canada have to do with anything with respect to shipping one of these devices? I have a PayPal account so funds isn't an issue, slightly more at the post office, but other than that...

Didn't intend to offend...

Never knew where I stood in the line up. Don't have the time to follow pages of yappin to see where I am but did come across a post of new projects beginning. Made me wonder a little about priorities. Lo siento brother.

Carry on with your fine work. Look forward to waking up the pig.

I was sifting throught the posts trying to get a bearing on what is shipped and what is pending.
I'm confused....

How many are left to fill the outstanding orders?
How many batches of shipments is that?
and approxamately when are they expected to ship?

I know everyone is anxoiusly awaiting and I am not trying to pester just trying to get a handle on where my order is.

Thanks

I believe it was because to sell internationally the device has to be "RoHS" compliant, which it is not.

RoHS basically means it doesn't have lead solder and stuff like that...

At least I think that was the reason...
