eyeglass industry requires very small screwdrivers, that may be a place to
start to look for the “tiny “

During the Chico election, four (4)
Spyrus readers ran out of battery during the day. During the Alameda
Oakland City election one (1) Spyrus ran out of battery. The Oakland
unit was "new" or unused to my knowledge, although I don't know where it had
been prior to being shipped from McKinney. The Chico units that ran out
of juice could have been from LA and may have been through an election.
However, it causes fairly big issues in the precinct, as it generally happened
around 5:00pm during the busiest time of the day.
following questions are raised and need to be answered:
Given the use of Spyrus in this environment, how long should be expect
batteries to last?
haven't found a philips yet that fits the battery compartment. Can
McKinney provide to us or give us
info on where we can
get small (scratch that - tiny) phillips screw drivers.
When changing batteries, do we "lose" the Global software stored in the
unit? My concern is obviously: If the battery only lasts an
election or two AND new software has to be loaded onto the Spyrus when
batteries are changed, we have a problem. Awaiting info.
