I got this from an on-line vendor with a purchase date of October 31, 2 days after the posting. It's all about the sale, isn't it. Sucks! My device failed on the first charge and vendor's referring me to evolve; so now I'm waiting to hear from them to have this taken care of. This was a gift from my brother and I've told him to dispute payment to the vendor until the problem's resolved. The postings herein are helpful in trusting optimistic expectations. Thanks!
