My euphoria was very short lived though, as my Carer put the charge cable into the side of the iBot not carefully enough, and now the very delicate pins are bent.
The frustration of knowing that such a small and accidental slip may leave me without that machine is very large.
It may be possible to straighten the 2 bent copper pins, without them snapping off, presumably using heat. Someone must be able to do that, or at least attempt to.
If anyone out there can help, then please, please get in touch.
Thank you, and a Happy New Year to anyone reading this.
