I'm not sure what you offer there but I'm sure it's going to be lacking compared to all the apps etc offered by developers who already have the guru and other units.
There are many listings of battery by China suppliers on eBay.
BUT all are illegal.
It is not allwed to send battery via air mail due to safety reason.
The seller simply cheats post office.
Now I am clear what you guys worry about. I must need partners in states.
Again wholesale price is US$99 for the US$158 package, suggested retail price US$199
Certainly I will grant market protect for partners
