I ordered a Circuit Sword Lite on the 11th and then ordered a regular Circuit Sword kit on the 23rd. I received a receipt from PayPal for my first order but nothing for the second? Im kind of worried about this as the funds for the second order has have been taken out of my bank account but the payment is not showing on my PayPal activity list. Is there any way to confirm both of my orders have been placed?
yeah send me an email and I'll confirm
i had to check my spam to get the confirmation email fwiw

What do people use for charging this beauty? Just a USB-C cable to a laptop or some kind of 230V charger, or?

I prefer a usbc to usba cable together with a usb outlet transformer. In guess this is what we all call usb charger.

I have a little bit of respect for these, since I inserted a USBA cable to charge an android phone into an Apple usb charger (standard iPhone thing).
It charged fine, right up until it exploded on the wall, sparks flying and cutting the power in my apartment :o :o

So anyone with tested recommendations would be nice, otherwise I guess a cable to a laptop cannot do any harm?

The tactile button shown on the Circuit Sword photos - is this the "mode" button in the GameBoy's DC port, that acts as a software shortcut to the various RetroPie functions? Is this completely plug'n'play to build onto the Curcuit Sword or does it require something extra?

That button doesn't appear to the OS as a 'button input' but instead when pressed it bring up an overlay that allows you to do some Circuit Sword specific functionality. For example turning on/off wifi, enabling the on screen keyboard, adjusting brightness/volume, etc

Cool - but is it plug'n'play part of the build directly or do I have to solder, 3d print a holder or some other thing?

Dangit! How do I always find out about new boards after the pre-orders close?

Kite, if you have someone back out of a Circuit Sword CM3 order, please let me know. I would also be interested in the 640 screen adapter.
