Production/shipping delay + new fastcharger
Unfortunately we have had to postpone the production run which was planned for this last week. This is due to the fact that one of our main components is late incoming, and unfortunately there is no alternative source of supply to which we could have turned.
We are told the component can be expected during this coming week, and after incoming quality control inspection, we can continue with the build. It looks currently as if this is going to delay shipping.
Obviously if we can bring things forward we will. In this connection a word about construction of the FS-X. A lot of work has gone into rationalisation of the production design, for example, the final version now uses absolutely no glue. This helps speed workflow and has reduced assembly time, which means that once on the line, your FS-X is actually assembled relatively very quickly. So actual lapsed time to run the first order is surprisingly short, and we'll be working with our production partner to make this as short as possible.
We realise you all want to get your hands on FS-X without delay, therefore we will also try our very best to speed up the actual shipment/logistics process, so as to lose as little time as possible.
We regret this delay and hope it doesn't cause you too much inconvenience.
You will also have noticed that while we have closed down the basic colour choices we still have not locked down the accessory choices. We hope to put up the final pics of the accessories soon and then close that down very shortly after. Note: this will not impact shipment time.
While we’re talking about accessories, our engineers took on board the comments we received when we unveiled the previous fastcharger design.
We have now been able to do three things:
- we have increased the total capacity to 5 A;
- at the same time we’ve been able to reduce the size of the electronics so we can put the two ports in a 50% smaller enclosure;
- the international pin plug system has been redesigned and is now much more robust when put in the wall plug.
Here are some pictures:
As you might have noticed, we've changed the colour slightly as the previous model was too much of a brilliant white.
That's it for now.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
