So I have 4 Flexes. 3 live outside 1 inside. The flex that lives inside is as good as new. The 3 Flexes that live outside - not so good.
Firstly these flexes are not much more than 3 months old, all housed under cover, have been treated with love and run the latest firmware at the time of writing (2.3.0).
Flex 1 - This flex has water ingress, not ideal for a device that billed as being used outdoors. It’s good for the bin. The LED ring is solid red, the power button is “unresponsive”, i.e. knackered and if you leave it charging the thing heats up to a dangerous level.
Flex 2 - This Flex currently works… but only charges to 30%.
Flex 3 - This Flex currently works… but only charges to 61%.
2 & 3 have been on charge now for 48 hours and have been reset. The Canary App and LED ring, (green charge indicator), show the same, unchanged, charge level.
These units are fit to work outside, right?
Right now it looks like I have a collection of rather expensive Canary paperweights.
