I’m glad it worked. We’re working on switching out all of the Amazon inventory with new boards and we’ll be testing each of them first for proper battery connections. It can sometimes be hard to solder to a battery which is why I suggested doing the board first. The next run of boards will have a different battery holder and board footprint so this issue can be avoided.

I’ve got some sketches about sleeping the Mayfly, I’ll try to post them soon. I’ve got a backlog of software examples to post, but also dealing with hardware and inventory stuff, so we’re rather busy here. It’s helpful to get requests from people so I know where to concentrate my efforts. Thanks for the heads up about the battery issue.

DaveE, did you have a similar problem with your board?
