    I've seen a few units have the pressure on the battery loosen over time due to the copper battery contact flattening out, in all but one case tightening up the screw a bit fixed the issue. You'll know if that's the cause by gently pinching the DI while injecting - if that fixes it, it's just a battery connection issue.

    I have had one other person report a similar issue that turned out that they somehow managed to mess with the USB calibration registers on the MCU - leaving the DI plugged in for a minute or two with the red/blue LED cycle caused it to eventually recalibrate and work properly.

    If you try both of these and it doesn't fix the issue please let me know!

    Thanks for your quick reply! I tightened the screw as best I could (the smallest I have is PH000), and that seemed to work! 3 straight injections with no issues. Thanks!

    Battery connection possibly - try pinching the DI when youre trying to inject - if that doesn't work then jump in discord and ping matinator

    Mattytrog is a good guy, as far as I'm concerned supporting his hobbies is just as good for Switch community development as supporting mine. :)

    Red won! An injection molding supplier has now been chosen after a lot of consideration (and me learning how to make moldable parts), and a down payment on the mold and some samples has been sent. I should have the sample parts in a few weeks, and if they look good, 1000 black and 1000 red sets should arrive on my doorstep a few weeks after that. :D

    While those are being made, I am going to be hand-soldering 100 early-bird v20's to help fund a larger batch from PCBway, similar to what I did for v19. This early-bird batch will be sold on the Discord and shipped by me directly, and I'll make sure to let everyone know a week before they become available, which should be around the end of July. The big batch of 600 should then hit the shop sometime in September, along with extra shells for those who want one for their v19. ^_^

    (Remember that these are all guesstimates and things can change, especially with everything going on right now!)

    As a reminder, v20 adds an RGB LED and the injection molded shell, but is otherwise functionally identical to v19. :P

    EDIT: Should mention laser engraving on the mold was free, so for those of you that hate stickers the logo is now subtly showing on the shell itself, which should look pretty slick in my humble opinion. Added some renders of red and black shells to show how it should look, as well as some other colors I want to make if there's still demand after the batch of 600. :lol:

    That laser engraving looks wonderful! I really like the transparent purple and green, will look great with the parts inside. But I'll happily buy whatever is available.

    Cheers! Looking forward to trying to get in on the early-bird batch.

    Are the V20 injection molded cases going to fit the previous hardware?

    That's the plan! They won't fit quite as well as the v20 boards since I moved the hole inwards on the PCB to line it up better with the hole on the shell, but they will work. If you've ever taken apart your v19 you'll understand - it's doable, but it can be a pain to put the screw back in.
