The Latest Test Results

Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed, we decided to go from an update once a week to once every two weeks. This is because we really want to focus all our time and energy on getting Linky ready a.s.a.p. It’s our highest priority. Nonetheless, we do want to keep you informed, so here’s an overview of our latest test results 🙂

UNBREAKABLE

In our previous update we explained how we were working on Linky’s structure and testing it to be long lasting and resistant, even in the most extreme conditions. We wanted to be able to have a static load of 300kg, but even more important, and dynamic load of 100kg, equivalent to a big man jumping on Linky. Last time we were still a few kilos short, but we’ve finally found a combination of materials and thermal treatments that make it possible! It’s a big result, because it’s a solid structure, yet flexible enough to ride comfortably. Now that we found this, the production of these parts will start soon.

PCBA

PCBA 1 PCBA 1

The first batch of PCBA made by the final supplier is ready for testing and debugging! Giovanni is working hard to adjust the final production problems and get it all started.

BATTERY PACK

The battery pack is already in production and we are in the process of getting all the certificates for the air transportation, as well as everything related to the safety standard required by the various markets.

PRODUCTION UPDATE

Unfortunately, we have a little bit more delay and we apologize for that. We understand that you want to ride Linky as soon as possible and we can’t wait to start shipping either, but at the same time we also want to make sure that you’ll get a reliable and durable board. That’s why we really need this extra time before shipment. We know it’s frustrating, but we’re almost there. It’s now a matter of fine-tuning. The production will start in the first half of July and after that we will announce a reliable shipping date. We thank you and all our backers for the support and patience and if you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Till next time!
The Linky Team
