Over 100 Premium Units / Kits are pre-produced and ready to go

Hi All - 

As you know, we have been waiting for the new Premium enclosures from China and that caused a few delays with fulfillment of Premium orders. 

But we have not sat on our thumbs waiting for that to happen! Over the last couple of weeks, we were preparing all the orders so that we just need to add enclosure when they arrive and ship right away (well, as quickly as we can pack them up ;-)

So now we have ~100 Premium orders prepared and waiting only on the enclosures.

Speaking of the enclosures, our supplier just told us that they had to delay by another 3-4 days to re-apply the surface treatment (powder coat) as the first run did not pass our quality control. Unfortunately this means that we are getting the first large batch of these this week instead of last week. However because we are preparing all these orders in advance, we think that you will be getting your JuiceBoxes roughly at the same time.

Other related updates: V8.7 boards have all been tested and new features are operating well (120v current control, voltage sensing calibration). Also, most of the components for WiFi module operation are pre-placed on the PCB now. So if you want to add a WiFi capability, it now requires a minimal amount of soldering (just the module and a couple of parts).

As always, thank you for your patience and support.

Team JuiceBox.

      I have built 5 Juicebox kits for myself and friends/family over the last 6 months. I love how well they operate, allow such fast charging and they cost so little money.
      Each time I receive a new kit they have made some sort of process improvement. They are easy to build and in my experience, work flawlessly.
      You can't beat the price. Get one, you won't be disappointed.
