How much would it cost to get a new board with a new battery tray for the LED? Would we have to have guns send in, or can we just replace the board?

LED = Battery indicator. LED will flash green every 3 sec when the battery is good. LED will flash red every 3 sec if the battery starts to get low. LED will turn red all of the time when the battery is getting ready to die.
Sleep mode - User programmable (w/ data cable) gun will go into 'sleep' mode after a pre-determined amount of time. (5 min increments up to 45 minutes) When in sleep, user must pull trigger to 'wake up' the marker. Marker will fire on this pull.
Shutdown mode - Like Sleep, but after the time is reached the gunn will shut down. User will have to turn off the switch and then turn it back on in order for the marker to function.
Increased Battery Life due to new board design.

That's all I can think of right now...
Presumably you could replace the board. However the LED hole would need to be drilled and the LED mounted. Non-AKA techs doing this would void the warranty. If you had an LED installed by me, I'll work something out for you on cost. You will have to send your gun into AKA to have the new board and/or LED installed. As far as I know they do not have a cost yet to "update" the board or how much a new tray would be. It will not be a free update. I have this on my list to talk to them about Monday. Cool thing is it's a short list and I'll get to bug them about some other stuff!
