Can someone tell me what power brick the 104hp version ships with? I seem to have lost mine.

Thank you.

I have the exact same weight. Their 3kg is a dream, not a reality ...

Intellijel, fake advertisers... very frustrating angry

I've just bought an Intellijel 7U 104hp Stealth Case seduced by its advertised light weight. On Intellijel's own website it is listed as 3.0 kg w/ Lid and Power Adapter.

However, after unpacking I have put it on a weighing scale and to my surprise it actually showed 4.2 kg without the power adapter.

I don't know where you guys think you're going to find a lighter case...

Thanks for confirming this theartstrip. thumbs up

I returned my Intellijel case purely because I though false advertising was inexcusable.

I was made to feel like I was just an overreacting 'gram-counter' with broken scales...

Intellijel, this is FALSE ADVERTISING - please at least admit it.
Your dealers should be made aware of this too. seriously, i just don't get it

very frustrating

I understand the principle here, however I have to question, the difference in 'weight' means what?

We showed you a photo of an industrial grade shipping scale with our case + meanwell on it verified that weight we posted. Now I made a video to show you the process we used.

It is entirely possible that this scale may require recalibration or is not as accurate in lower range but we have never had any reason to doubt that this scale was inaccurate. We use it daily for a multitude of shipments with all the major couriers (who all re-weigh our shipments). Therefore I used this as the data to post on our site.

How is this in any shape or form false advertising? If I get a chance to measure these with another commercial grade scale (no bathroom/kitchen scale) and the values are different then I will be happy to update our website data.

On a side note: anyone who picks up one of these cases in person is consistently impressed with how light they feel. Once you put modules in it the weight is going to be wildly different anyhow.

I think the kitchen scale people should be held up to the same ethical levels; it's easy to shout FALSE ADVERTISING but what about LIBEL?

What if you just pull the rubber foot off a little to even the legs? Maybe put a little something inside the foot to fill the void?

I'm still interested in the black case as my next case. Anyone know if the 1U modules will ever be available with black faceplates?

I would like to assume Intellijel might be open to this considering they have discussed the change in their panel printing process, however I believe they have mentioned in the past that even in 3U, black panels aren’t something they will be doing

Most of the 1U modules are straightforward--you could lightly sand, and spray paint the faceplates with black enamel.

I’m very curious. I wish someone with the bathroom scale wouldn’t mind to spare their time to possiblly re-check it with another “commercial/industrial grade” scale too. Maybe try to bring it to the nearest post office & check with their scale? seriously, i just don't get it

lol false advertising yeah I think I'm gonna go with the company that regularly responds to customer complaints on this forum, ships their products all over the world, and contracts with industrial manufacturers over the folks taking smartphone photos of their bathroom scales.

I own two Intellijel cases, I didn't buy them because of weight thresholds and as such haven't (and won't) weigh them. They're great cases. The idea that Intellijel is some bad-faith vendor in the modular community doesn't pass the smell test.

I should have just stayed out of it but let me clarify: Vytis is saying they were seduced by the light weight advertised by Intellijel and now they are going to return it because of false advertising.

Anyone that handles this case knows that this as light of a product as anyone would feel comfortable putting thousands of dollars worth of electronics in. Personally, I would be happier with a bit thicker metal. A couple more pounds even.

To me it seems an odd reason for us to pick up our pitchforks but to each their own.

I really can't believe this. The next thing you are going to tell us is that Intellijel's Dixie in LFO mode doesn't cycle at the stated rates with the caveat that you used a sun dial to measure.
