I have been a regular reader of this forum for the past year and have learned a great deal about my Vectrix. Thank you all for that. It seems to me that most of the current concern surrounds battery health issues and many users including me may have had an excellent experience thus far but are anxiously awaiting that catastropic battery failure. In reading the posts it seems as if we are lumping the experiences of at least three types of Vectrix's together leaving no clear answers. More specifically:
1. Pre October 2008 Vectrix running old software (pre October 2008) exclusively.
2. Pre Pctober 2008 Vectrix, using old software initially switch to new software at some point
3. Any new or leftover Vectrix running only the new software for its lifetime
Hence I would like to get feedback from users who have nevere run the old software (i.e. group 3) but were using the Oct 2008 fix with charging delay throughout. Have there been battery issues? How about those who have had the battery pack replaced and have only operated the new software since.
Is it possible that software upgrade fixed the battery problem sufficiently to assure longevity and are we missing this in the discussion because people use different battery/software combination.
Thanks, I am curious.
