Battery-Powered Maypoles Programmed & Tested

by Akshar Vastarpara

While we continue to be affected by the COVID-19 situation in India, including additional lockdowns, we have managed to carry out a series of three tests on each of the 192 maypoles produced in this batch. They are all working properly and we expect to pack them up and ship them to Crowd Supply before the end of the month.

Below is a picture of six battery-powered Maypoles after being programmed with the latest firmware and tested:

We know we are late, and we’re sorry, but it was unavoidable. We’ve set the estimated ship date to the end of June, but we fully expect to ship before that. Thank you for your patience!
