As all of you receive your energyShields we know you will be very eager to assemble them and get them powering your projects, so Jordan spent many hours yesterday finishing the product manual. It looks great and it is posted on out website (https://ns-electric.com/products/energyshield) along with the Arduino library that I wrote for the fuel [...]
As of today, ALL of the rewards have been shipped! If you had an email address attached to your Kickstarter account you should have gotten an email with your tracking information. I'm looking forward to getting some feed back as you all get to start using the energyShield!
The last few weeks have been very exciting. We've moved through production, testing, and packing. Production Since the energyShield is basically just an assembled, printed circuit board (PCB) its manufacturing process is essentially the PCB assembly process. The process begins with a PCB design (that's what we did) and a parts list. The manufacturer (Jaycon [...]
We are proud to announce that the energyShield will be assembled in the USA! We are working with a company right here in Melbourne, FL known as Jaycon Systems. Jaycon is fairly well known in the DIY electronics community as a distributor, but they are, even more so, a contract manufacturer. Obviously they will assemble your [...]

The power jacks and AC adapters are in the mail and our manufacturer has received all of the parts to assemble the energyShields. I even got to snap a picture [...]
The last few weeks have been a really busy. As I mentioned in the last update, we had sent out for a prototype design. The PCBs and parts arrived the following week. Then we assembled them and put them through some rigorous testing. In the end... it worked PERFECTLY! In the last week and a [...]
