      Actually no answer since June 5 asking to check with my neighbours or postal department without providing details about the package - weight, shipping date, shipping type (letter, small package), sender's name, address and postal index - which I've asked for.
      Any news?

      You haven't answered my comment https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pijuice/pijuice-a-portable-project-platform-for-every-rasp/posts/2161384…

      sales@pi-supply wasn't helpful either, just returned me my address for shipping addons which are NOT arrived yet.

      Please do something!

      I have only received the solar panel. I send a message a couple weeks ago. Has the rest of the package shipped?

      I have only received the pijuice, still waiting for the rest of 115£ pledge.

      Update #79 Mar 27 2018 or 8 weeks
      "Add ons
      Today, we FINISHED shipping all the add ons (apart from maker kits and additional batteries). So any of you who haven't received your add ons (solar panels, pis, sd cards, cases etc) should expect to receive those in the next 4 to 6 weeks at the very latest."

      Hello,

      I didn't receive my pledge, apparently it arrived in Sweden but was then sent to Switzerland. How can I make it find its way back to me?

    17. PiJuice Creator on May 8

      @ neil - it should be with you soon. Please email to sale@pi-supply.com if you still haven't received it in 4 to 6 weeks.

    18. PiJuice Creator on May 8

      @ Offthegrid - thanks for that. Looks quite similar to our tests too.

    19. PiJuice Creator on May 8

      @ Toby - you shouldn't need a bigger battery for the 3B+ but you could always upgrade to the 2300mAh. The PiJuice doesn't use any pins really, just I2C so it shouldn't clash with any board really.

      Where does one go to follow up on un-received goods? Received my juice today, but still have not received the Solar module or Swag bag :/

      Apologies if I missed a post somewhere telling me where to go.

      I ran a test on a Pi 3B+, headless and doing nothing beyond reporting the PiJuice power level every few seconds.
      From full charge to powering down it lasted a little over 4 hours.
      If your Pi is busy it might only last 1 hour.

    22. Toby Harper on May 8

      I got mine today it looks good, I am unsure if I can still use it for what I intended as various things have changed. My understanding is that I will need a bigger battery to power a pi 3b+ is that right? I want to run it as a UPS with my current google aiy voice setup so I need to work out if there are any pin conflicts but it sounds like it's possible.

    23. PiJuice Creator on May 7

      @ Frank - thanks very much. Let us know how you get on and what you use it for!!

    24. Frank Rodolf on May 4

      Received my PiJuice today. Looks good! It will be a few weeks before I get a chance to test it (working on some other projects at the moment), but I'm sure looking forward to it!

    25. PiJuice Creator on May 3

      @ Robin - we are working on it sorry, taking way way longer than we thought to fix

    26. PiJuice Creator on May 3

      @ Ian - completely understand your cynicism due to the huge delays, but thanks for your kind words we do really appreciate it.

    27. PiJuice Creator on May 3

      @ Adrian - thanks very much for your kind words, we are so glad to have delivered to everyone!

      Hi, I've received my PiJuice, but I added a 5000mAh battery to my order through BackerKit at extra cost. Any idea when this will show up?

      Thanks, Dave

      Have finally received my PiJuice, thank you!
      and thanks for persevering with this great piece of kit.
      I saw mention in a comment here of an outdoor case being worked on - is it still in the works?

    36. Rick Tonoli on April 29

      Got mine in NZ today, finally, making it 3 years since backed (not complaining, just saying :) ). Well done for all the updates and perseverance.

      Now if only I could remember what I wanted to use it for!

      Where do we find instrunctions on the use of PiJuice?

      Is there a forum where we can ask /answer questions and raise issues?

      I received my PiJuice today thank you very much. This was the first project I backed on Kickstarter and over the last 3 years you have kept us updated regularly and for that I thank you. I felt confident in you delivering what you promised all along.
      I will now dig out my Pi and see what I can do.

      Good job guys.

      Ian George on April 26

      I have to admit that as the time has ticked by I've become increasingly cynical about this project. I probably stopped "playing" with my pi about 2 years ago and I've no longer got any recollection of what I might have wanted the piJuice for.

      However, as it arrived today I felt a slight pang of guilt as, ridiculously late though it is, it arrived. It's very easy to look in from the outside and be critical, but I believe the creators deserve significant credit for persevering in the face of mounting criticism and actually delivering.

      And it looks like it will fulfil it's brief and do what it's supposed to do (though in my case I'm not entirely sure what that is).

      Thank you and well done!

    41. PiJuice Creator on April 25

      @ Marco - your pledge shipped on 14th April. Emails were sent from both BackerKit and Floship. Also you can check BackerKit here https://pijuice.backerkit.com

    42. PiJuice Creator on April 25

      @ Andrew - you should have received an email from both BackerKit and Floship - you can also log in to BackerKit to find the tracking here https://pijuice.backerkit.com

      Hi, I haven't gotten any emails about my pledge being shipped. Can you please check on whether an email was sent, and where my PiJuice is. Thanks

    44. Andrew Molloy on April 24

      Thanks for replying. I haven’t received any emails with a tracking no. What is backerkit and floship?

    45. PiJuice Creator on April 24

      @ Diego - because that overcomplicates things massively, and from the KS we realised the vast majority of people want the onboard one

    46. Diego Zuccato on April 24

      I hope the big batteries will come soon.
      But why not sell the hat without a battery? It's a big fraction of the price and quite useless if an user needs the bigger one (he can't connect both!)...

    47. PiJuice Creator on April 24

      @ David - your order was shipped on the 14th April. I checked the tracking site linked to and the Swiss Post website and both are saying it left Hong Kong on 18th April so should be with you soon.

      When do I become concerned about the delivery of my PiJuice?

      My email say's it was sent out on the 4th and I am unable to track it.

    49. PiJuice Creator on April 23

      @ Randy - totally agree with everything you have said, and thanks for backing us up. Really appreciate your support :-)
