If $80 is the lowest price for the Auber unit some might still want to take a close look at the BBQ guru NanoQ that can be found for $30 more. It has several features that the Auber likely doesn't have including:
1. Open lid detection so the fan doesn't go nuts when you baste, load, or flip.
2. Adaptive control algorithm to learn how fast your cooker heats up and adjusts ramping rate accordingly.
3. A nice stainless mounting plate/hardware with several mounting options.
4. A rugged sealed exterior with colors to match your themapen and a picture of Shotgun Fred.
As a disclaimer I have no affiliation with BBQ guru besides the fact that I have two units, they have worked great for me and I think they are a decent value for the build quality. I would still like to find/fabricate lower cost fan units as after the teardown this morning I think they are overpriced.
