Thanks for the update on timelines, kite!
No problem, some minor delays finishing up manufacturing and shipping has meant about a 2-3 week delay. I've added expected dates and will update them as information arrives :)

FYI all orders have now been shipped. I am though having issues with my email provider and cannot send replies or tracking numbers, so please bear with me while I get that sorted and as soon as it's done the tracking numbers will be emailed out :)

Thanks mate, can’t wait. Do you have an estimate on how long it will take to get to Japan?

Since Megabats seem to be extinct, what alternatives have you guys used for your Sword builds?

Just opened my Circuit Shield to check it out and it looks great. But I do have a question. The preorder spec pictures show a port labeled NSWITCH for a Nintendo Switch joystick, but mine is labeled PSV for a Vita joystick. Just wondering what happened and why the downgrade? The Vita stick isn't clickable. Plus, now I have to order a Vita joystick since I had already ordered a Switch one in anticipation. And is it the Vita 1000 stick or 2000? Because if I remember correctly, there is a difference in the ribbon cables between the two.

There are some similar LiPo cells (*just* similar, not totally the same and lack the packaging of the Helder MegaBats) on Amazon for <$20. e.g., 4000mAh e.g., 2000mAh

They include JST connectors but you need to be certain you match polarity at the CircuitShield board (you can use an exacto blade or point to remove and swap the leads at the JST connector.

Hi Kite,

While almost everything on my build (received a few days ago) works great, I am having a couple of minor issues I couldn't find solutions to:

1) Select Button will not "hold down." In some gameboy games (e.g., Legend of Zelda DX) you need to hold down the select button to be able to see a sub-menu (e.g., color of suit). While the select button works fine momentarily, it will not hold. I suspect it is because it is set as the hot-key, but not entirely sure. If it is due to it being used as a hot-key, I will try and re-assign to a different hot-key combo.

2) I have a stuck pixel (blue/blue-green) in the middle of my screen. Do you have a preferred method to try and un-stick pixels on these screens?

Sorry I wasn't able to find answers to these questions in the forums. However, I was able to find help on all other issues in the forums based on your replies (joy stick install, SD card issues, R1, R2 button connections, etc) so thanks for responding to all of the older posts and being so informative.

Thanks-in-advance,
RG.

I ended up going with the Bllutech battery. I wanted the most I could get in the space and they seem to be pretty highly regarded.

Edit: I'm worried about the polarity thing, so I'm gonna figure out how to check with my multimeter before I plug in my Sword.
