Re: Warning: Defective Konnwei KW-902 on the market

I just received a KW902 from amazon. I tested the resistance and it was 20 ohms. I'm glad I found this thread before plugging it in! Is it worth removing the resistor or should i return it to amazon in hopes of getting a good one next?

Update:

I flicked off the resistor and the unit works just fine now. I still ordered an Lelink so I can keep it plugged in all the time with less battery drain.

Turbo3 posted to Amazon, as did I, warning people about the resistor issue. You would think the seller or Konwei might followup on that and fix the issue. Pretty disappointing that you just bought one that's still defective...

Think Turbo3 will have to removed them from his approved list for Leaf Spy.

Just flick the resistor off with your finger nail. There's some pics early on in this thread. I ended up contacting amazon about the bad unit before I removed the resistor and they refunded my money and let me keep the unit. Now i have a working KW-902 that cost me nothing but my time.

I recently bought a Konnwei based on the recommendation of the LeafSpy app, and I'm trying to determine if it is defective. I don't see a resistor as indicated in the original image. Here is a picture of my adapter. Image

When I measure the resistance it appears to be 27kohm which seems like it would be more than 120ohm, but I'm not confident enough in my EE skills to be sure.

I'm I correct in thinking it is safe to use?
