Question
Powerlab 8 for $200?!

Hi,
I see FMADirect are now offering the old version for $200.
I believe this can be updated to the new version. Are there any differences that I am not aware of?

Sorry if this has been brought up already.

Thanks.

I have both the V1 and V2. I would not be afraid of buying the V1

Thanks!
The only thing stopping me from pulling the trigger is shipping to Canada, duty and taxes.
I can get the V2 for the standard price at a lhs but I don't have to pay shipping or duty.

The units listed on the REVO USA site are brand new 30A units with a full one year factory warranty. The quantities are very limited and they won't last long!

If it wasn't for the high shipping cost and the duties I will end up paying, I would be all over it.
Direct selling is a great idea but only if the total cost for the consumer is lower. Outside of the US the shipping prices are very high. To be frank, it will be much cheaper to just buy it from a LHS at the higher price...which sucks.

Just to confirm again...these can be upgraded and the only difference might be some of the cables being of a smaller guage?

Hi:

Correct. But the v1's were tested to the full 40A capability of v2 firmwares and the wire gauge is acceptable.

Well I couldn't resist...I went ahead and ordered the $200 unit with a bunch of accessories from you guys.
It was about $30 cheaper with shipping compared to buying from a lhs because of the $200 deal...even cheaper if I don't get charged for tax! They are not that local as it's about a 2 hour drive so I figured if there were problems the hassle of the drive was more than the cost of just shipping back to you guys.
