Alright, so I finally got confirmation that the first 100 boards were shipped yesterday.
I am leaving Friday morning for my paramedic psychomotor exam in Memphis and will not return until Sunday night. So assembly will occur on Monday.

This presale is essentially to fund the parts for the boards. Normal price is going to be between $12 and $13. During this presale, each driver is $10.

I only have 100 boards coming this batch. I also have another 1300 on the way. We're going to try to avoid shortages in the future. We all know how much that sucks.

For tech info, pictures, ect.. see the link above.

Below is the list of output currents available.
190
231
306
372
421
487
496
537
562
603
667
678
718
793
859
950
1140
1181
1256


I have added the driver to the website for the presale.
important: DO NOT use the LPF discount code when pre ordering these drivers. The discount code does not apply for this presale, and if you use it your order will be refunded, and you may end up missing out on this run of drivers.
However, if you're ordering other items WITH your ben boost, feel free to use any coupon for the whole order.

Alright guys. Here is the link.

Hope the sale goes well! I wish these came available in the PHR range. It'd be a nice alternate driver to the equally priced Groove2's and your drivers.

Yeah, the linear drivers will be dropped in price once these are regularly available.

Just for you Fret, I added a 3.24 ohm resistor to the cart. We now have 117mA options.

Just confirming... this can fit in the C6? and be used with an 18650 battery?

Maybe a dumb question here...I'm shooting for 1.8A, do you guys know if I can combine a .950mA and a .859mA, or do they need to be balanced?

Thanks.

I'll need to get the measurements and measure the inside of the C6 pill.

Ben also send me a round version of this driver, which i'm gonna get made. It will be able to slide right into the C6 pill.

and yes, you can power it with a single 18650 battery.

Ita okay, im keeping a 20 unit buffer in case something goes wrong.
Assuming they all go smooth, ill have a few left over for sale.

I plan to test all of these in this batch before shipping them, until I am confident in them.
