Our team is preparing shipment.
This update is addressed to those 271 backers who have ordered a fastcharger.
Our latest testing on our accessories has shown that there are safety risks with the 4.2A (2 x 2.1 A) fastchargers.
These problems can include one or more of the following:
- One of the ports becomes inoperable
- Danger of electrical shorting
Charging with a normal 0.4/0.5A charger is considerably slower (up to 4 hours per FS-X). For this reason, we would not want to drop this accessory altogether for those of you who opted for fastcharging.
We are in the final phase of preparing shipment so we cannot risk to lose time with a complicated solution such as offering an alternative accessory or a partial refund. We have instead decided to supply a new, tried and tested 2 x 1.0A fastcharger. This will charge 2 FS-Xs in 2 hours. While we ship, we will continue to develop a new fastcharger with our original specifications and offer a replacement to those 271 backers.
Here are two photos of the new, 2 x 1.0A fastcharger:
If there are any further developments we will be sure to share this information with you immediately.
Your next update will be no later than a week from now, Wednesday 2nd December.
All the best,
The Frankenspiel Team
