Yeah, last I heard from them, edited for briefness.
We began shipping the first nPower® PEG units before Labor Day and continue to build, test, and ship product each week. Unfortunately, this process has taken longer than expected, primarily due to the delayed delivery of the unique, custom-made battery that goes inside of every PEG.
This tube-shaped battery is a world’s first, and the supplier is having difficulties manufacturing them in quantity. The supplier is, however, delivering a small supply of batteries each week.
The battery ....must be sealed properly in order to meet our stringent safety and environmental requirements. Due to the battery’s unique shape, the supplier is having difficulty automating the process of making that seal correctly. Therefore, each and every battery is currently being made and inspected by hand.
We realize that these delays have been much longer than any of us had ever anticipated, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We are working closely with this supplier to find a way to speed up this process (as well as reaching out to new, potential battery suppliers).
