Small unpaid advertisement

I was bit worried about lacking power button in V4. I find quite nice solution from nearest Lidl...  There was cheap extension cord with 3 sockets and power switch :). Issue solved.

Good point, I also find lacking the button annoying.

I live beside LIDL but I'm not sure if this is sold in my country.

However, local (or global) e-bay delivers these.

Will get one for Vampire, for sure.  Some (deemed) Vampire re-sellers like AmigaKit might have such items (ie. branded = money for the Team) in their offering...

I ordered micro USB cable with power switch instead of mini USB cable with switch. It is cheaper and there are many sellers. Then I ordered Micro USB Female to Mini USB Male adapter.
