      Hi James and David!

      We have discussed your suggestions and have to agree. As this is the first iteration we clearly have room to improve. At the same time, portability and cost effectiveness are key ingredients. We have started working out how to incorporate current control without adding significant costs to the build. We have also been looking at alternative housings in order to increase the portability. So James, we're going after those extra points you mentioned.

      Thanks for the feedback,

      Brad and Mike

      I agree with the other guy. Think about independent control and display of current and voltage. This is what distinguishes a useful lab bench power supply from a useless lab bench power supply.

      Looks great guys! Killer features I'd like:
      - As thin as possible (pocketable)?
      - If not thin, tiny alligator clips and leads stored within device?
      - Press a button to change to Current Control (extra points for independent selection of current and voltage display and current and voltage control)

      But if it was just as it is, you have my money! ;)
