[available again] When will the Pinecil be available again?
Pinecil v1 is discontinued.  Long live the Pinecil v2!

It looks like the Pinecil counterfeit explosion forced them to update it, but still the same $29.99 price.

Pinecil V2 preliminary specifications: (changes are in bold).

MCU – Bouffalo Lab BL706 32-bit RISC-V microcontroller @ 144 MHz with 132KB SRAM, 192KB ROM, optional embedded flash, Bluetooth 5.0 LE and 802.15.4 (Zigbee) connectivity

Tip – 106mm long, Type B2; automatic detection of 6.2 vs 8 Ohm tips

Misc – 2x buttons; auto-standby features, teal silcone grip, anti-counterfeiting measures
Power Supply 12V-20V / 3A via USB Type-C port with USB PD and QC 3.0 support, tentative support for USB-PD EPR (28V)
