The DrainBrain, Ebike Amp-Hour Meter End of Life Announcement, March 2007:
The DrainBrain V1 series both with and without speedometers is now a fully discontinued product. Many thanks go out to the loyal customers who have given excellent feedback and enabled this experiment in cottage manufacturing to be the success that it was.
Is that the end? What next?
It's been no secret that I've been working on a Version2 unit that plugs directly into the special 6-pin connector that's we've had added to the modified Crystalyte controllers sold at ebikes.ca for the past 9 months. This V2 DrainBrain has the ability to read the speed from hall effect signals rather than a spoke magnet, it implements programmable maximum speed control, offers user customization of the screen displays, and has the added capability of taking upgrade modules for such things as data logging and battery charge control. The V2 will have a beta release in early April 2007, and more information will be put up at that time.
I've finally had a chance to clear out and sort through the original DrainBrain inventory and put together quite a few units for discounted sale. So if you've been eyeing a Brain for your latest project but have been a bit tight no cash here is a chance. Use the buttons and paypal for checkout, shipping anywhere in the world with regular airmail is $8 for one item, or $14 for two, or $18 for three.
