    If any DP member here bought a system and is unhappy about the electric squeal sound (you should), please PM me for an exchange.

    The squeal exists because the factory tried to slip a few hundred already made systems into our main shipment. The squeal is not acceptable and we have already switched to a new circuit design since the initial prototype phase.

    The annoying and stupid high pitched squeal is still there. Check out youtube. A few people who already received theirs posted reviews. In EVERY SINGLE one you can clearly hear the irritating high pitched sound. Extremely ridiculous.

    And the battery life seems to be lower than expected which is unacceptable in my opinion.

    Either way, wait for the second revision. They weren't really serious with fixing the issues but instead wanted to get this out there and take advantage of the holiday season and people who rush to buy things. Wait till they get serious and resolve the current flaws. Great idea and product, but the way it stands now, NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

    thank you.
