So now that some time has passed how many are using the acrylic covers on their Switchboard?

I think you could ask Martin how many acrylic covers he've sold. (But you could not be sure how many user actually use them.)
But personally I use it, mainly to protect the board.

On the under side there are solder points and I don't think it is a good idea that you, by mistake, put the board on top of, say, a metal paperclip or any other metal object! A shortage or other damages might happen! (Maybe Martin will inform us?)
That is the reason I use the cover.

I agree with Ekat that the "naked" look is better though, but I will use the cover.
Considering the price to get a spare.... well... Smile

I have had mine for four months now and used and performed with it many many times, and it has never failed! Great product indeed!

Oh! I don't know why I was not receiving notifications from the forum and missed several pages of replies Smile
Thanks all for all the support and great reviews we are receiving about Switch Board. I was aware that this was the product were we dedicated more time and effort, but all your messages makes me feel very proud of it.

About the acrylic cover, well to my taste I prefer without it. But most of you are getting the acrylic case, and those who don't usually end up buying it a few days after receiving their Switch Board. Its a pity, because shipping is as expensive as the acrylic case, so if you are in doubt, maye better to buy it together than having to pay "twice the price" a few days later.

Its true that placing the board over a metal surface can short the connections. That is something to avoid, but we took some internal precautions so probably you wont end up burning your board... its more likely to kill the rechargeable battery insted. Still be careful as warranty don't cover those kind of problems.

BTW, several of you were interested on buying a second circuit as a spare, so now you can buy only the circuit if you want:

And its true, as someone stated a few days ago, this is our last production as no factory is willing to fabricate more. We have enough stock for now, but don't wait to much as it might be too late Smile

Cant wait to watch Michael's review! Smile
No, I dont know what im doing. Nowbody knows what im doing. Thats why its called investigation.

I included the acrylic cover with my purchase as Martin suggests, not being sure if I would end up using it. As it turns out I too prefer the look of the “naked” board.

But I did use the tiny fasteners supplied with the acrylic cover by themselves without using the actual cover. Just put the small bolts through the board with the coupling nuts on the underside to act as short legs to elevate the soldered connections enough so as not to make contact with any surface the board is placed on.

I originally thought the board itself would be somewhat fragile without the covers and could possibly snap if carried in a pocket or dropped. But upon receiving it I found it to be much more robust than I had anticipated so I found the acrylic covers to be unnecessary.

Hey!
Just want to say that due to the new European Union regulation we will have to charge VAT tax according to each country (within EU). That is an increase of 19% to 25% Smile
Price rise will be effective next Monday 1st November.
This also applies to spare parts. Anyone interested is suggested to buy before Monday to avoid the rise.
Regards!

If you sell Switch Board inside the EU you have to charge VAT and outside EU selling no VAT ?

As I know the new EU law is working since 1. Juli 2021 but only for outside EU products ...

Since July 1st there are several new policies. One of this is that sales within EU should have VAT tax applied at the rate of the destination country.
So Switch Board sales with VAT tax only apply for EU countries. Outside EU the price is still the same.

By default, I think Euros, but you can change the currency.

Switch Board owners... Run, don't walk, to the Switch Board Facebook Group to see the video that Martin posted an hour ago. It's a new feature that's coming to complement our Switch Boards.

How would like to be able to control one of the bulbs with its corresponding switch when the bulb is NOT screwed into the socket? The bulb is just lying on the table, yet the switch still turns the bulb on and off.

Martin does not show how it's done but says it should be available to order in 2-3 months. In reply to a question, he posted that we will not have to send in our Switch Boards for modification.

Based on the video, it looks entirely clean and fair. No tricky moves (that I can see).

Hopefully, Martin will share the video here too.

That does look amazing! But I do wonder if that will make people then just conclude that the whole thing is wireless anyway, and that "explains" all the other effects...
