iLiad Parts

Does anyone know if iRex will sell parts for the iLiad? I need the power board. I've verified that is the problem, but I don't want to send back an out of warranty unit.

Just out of curiosity, how do you know it's the problem? I know a little bit about the power board...

Does anyone know if the power boards are the same between v1 and v2? I know the upgrade added an additional battery, but I'm not sure if the board was also changed.

Did you mean "additional battery" or "bigger battery"? The power board of the v1 looks like the one in Figures 4 and 5 of this guide. If your board looks the same, then it's probably the same board.

I haven't yet written part 3 of my iLiad Battery Hacks article, but...

Basically, the v1 power board contains an EEPROM chip that can be reflashed (kind of like new firmware) to support a new battery size. This is probably what iRex did during battery upgrades. So if you got the v1 batteries upgraded, or you own a v2, the board is probably the same as the original v1 board (and should be interchangeable).

I have a v2, but the board looks the same as in your thread so they must not have changed the actual board from the v1 to the v2. I'll give them a call on Monday and see if I can beg them to sell me a power board. If not, I'll probably try to pick up the used flybook on ebay and cannibalize it for parts.
