You are right and so for those without cases I will probably still keep them the same. However when the case is on it is even harder to get them out of the death grip those clips have on your batteries.

Re: Suggestions/Observation/Bug Reporting

I am ordering weaker spring clips right now. I used them in the past and struggled with which one to go forward with for this project. The only catch with the weaker clips, is that you may sometimes get bad contact and need to squeeze/readjust them with use.

Re: Discussion of Mark's firmware

How about Blue alternating with Red? Solid Blue currently indicates resting, so that might be more logical? That sounds good! Is there really a need to individual LEDS when we've got a colour LCD in the middle? I suppose it would be nice to be able to see at a glance what the status is for each bat...

Same here... else I would just be using a dumb trickle charger.

Re: Real Time Clock

I think this is a great idea as well and would not be hard to implement.

Re: Discussion of Mark's firmware

I still think we should drop the white while charging. I see your point about people might think the flashing is representative of the current being delivered. If that is really an issue then we could just get rid of the flashing red altogether like it was in the beginning and then it actually will ...
