With many recent inquires, I should put out an official statement…  We are no longer working on the squeezebox project.  We have a ton invested in both time and parts, but there are several roadblocks that have come up.  The system grew into a fairly high parts count/cost and verifying that every part was correct on every unit became a QC issue that we are not used to dealing with.  In addition the batteries were failing after long times without being used, and the built in charger circuit is not compatible with other battery technologies.  We are working with a couple beta testers to try a new battery / charge system and are hopeful that will yield good results.  I have always said that we would not release it unless I felt that it was exactly the way we think it should be.  We don’t want to have something that either develops a bad reputation or that is a pain for customers and for us in updating to fix ‘issues’.  My hope is that after we get some time on the new charging system that we can revisit it and continue to move forward.
