We’re getting ready for the first of several batches to come out in Q1 2022! We’ll be restocking 50+ boards tomorrow, January 5th 2022 at 7:00PM EST. We’ve been able to speed up the build time a good amount and are already working on the boards in the next batch. There have been a lot of optimizations behind the scenes as far as supply chains and assembly processes go, but unfortunately this will be the last batch at $85 for the foreseeable future.
Price to increase to 95$ next batch!
The blog post for the restock of the next batch will go more in depth on the specifics, but the gist of it is that we’ve been hit by the same supply and shipping issues the rest of the world has been dealing with. However, this current batch will remain at $85/board.
Noteworthy updates for current batch:
- We’re using 1/16″ hex head screws instead of philips heads to streamline assembly on our end
- USPS has suspended FCPIS and PMI shipping options to Australia and New Zealand, which unfortunately means that your shipping costs may be doubled compared to what they had been in the past. You can try to look into shipping forwarders for better rates, but the best we can do is ~$60-$80 for shipping in these regions until USPS opens their cheaper option back up.
