    Yup, I typed most of what's on the little bit of paper that comes with it.


    Useless info, the Wii uses 19W when playing Wii Sports with 2 wiimotes.

    Would it really be worth it for an Electus group buy? It's almost $24 when you include GST. Then when you add postage, it would be about $30 or so. It's only $10 more to go get it yourself. If you want more than one, then I suppose it would be ok.

    I'm quite interested, and can maybe buy 5 from Electus for Melbourne people and either ship them / drop them off or have them picked up to save on extra postage.

    Would save about $14 on the unit price I think.

    Probably even a bit more if it's sent twice. (once to the organiser, then again from the organiser --> you)


    Count me in (for one) for a Melb group buy :D

    Melbourne groupbuy and pickup seems the easiest.

    i can do a sydney group buy if needed, electus are only down the road so I can easily pickup from their warehouse (and save on freight).

    sydney people can then pickup from my place.

    EDIT: or pickup from my work, at rosehill.
