Hi all,

More news for you with regards to shipping and lots of other stuff. Let's get started...

Shipping update

As you can see from the below image, our shipping partner Floship has early last week successfully approved and received the incoming shipment of PiJuice boards (RAAMaudio UK LTD is our official company name). This was the final step before commencing shipping and just required them to confirm the quantities of items in the shipment. They have already begun the picking and packing process. We have provided them with a CSV file to complete detailing the tracking number and courier service they use for any shipment. Once they send the completed form for this shipment we will immediately upload it to BackerKit which will send you a notification of the tracking number by email, so you know to look out for your shipment.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the BackerKit data, it does not seem to actually have your Kickstarter backer number in the export. So we are not entirely sure of the order these will ship out in. We are talking with Floship and BackerKit about this in more detail to confirm what's possible. We may have to ship out in a more random fashion. We will keep you posted. Additionally Chinese New Year may cause a slight delay but hopefully nothing too drastic.

More updates soon.

DietPi support

We sent one of the sample units across to DietPi to build support into their awesome bare bones OS and this is now successfully complete.

You can read more about it here and here.

Power monitor project

In our previous update #69 you may remember we showed a project that Frederick Vandenbosch was working on to build a power outage monitor with PiJuice, Raspberry Pi A+ and a PaPiRus HAT.

Well the great news is that now Frederick has published on his website a guide on how to build it yourself. Hopefully this might provide some project inspiration if you're needing some :-)

Thanks as always,

Aaron and the Pi Supply team
