Hey everyone,
Take a seat, I have some potentially bad news. I messed up.
When i sent the SaturnPSU’s away for manufacture, i messed up the BOM (Bill of Materials) by marked one of the resistors as 124k and not 121k that it should have been. As a result, the boards now output the wrong voltage on the 5v rail.

Luckily, they caught the issue in testing and emailed me 10 minutes ago about it. I just wanted to get this out there now as i don’t want to hide anything.
Worst case scenario is they wont be willing to change the resistor out on the SaturnPSU’s, if that it the case, they will be shipped to me and i will have to do them manually, this will take a fair amount of time.
Best case scenario is they replace the resistor with the correct one, and they ship me a working product.

The plan was to have all your orders shipped out by the end of April, despite the estimated delivery date on indiegogo, however that has now passed due to the backlog the manufacturer has.
Whatever the outcome may be, there will unfortunately be a delay in shipping your orders. But you WILL get your order.

I hope you will all forgive me for this stupid mistake, and be understanding of the impending delay.
I will keep you all updated as and when i get information.

Manufacturing Update

Hey Everyone,
I was hoping that by now i would have some more solid news. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, Word from the manufacturer is that the SaturnPSU’s will be shipped out to me at some point next week, and can take about a week to arrive.
Once they arrive, I will have to fully assemble the main power cable and test them. Then make up your orders and ship them out.
So, although it looks like the May delivery date will be reached, its looking closer to the latter half of May.
Thank you everyone for being so patient, and a note to anyone who is thinking of doing this kind of thing in the future, Don’t do it over Chinese New Year.
