    They should get it fine (as the rest of the address was correct), but sorry we didn't pick this up before sending the 1st email.

    As per Royal Mail's T&C's Ni-MH batteries are fine, just as long as the box has one of their 'Ni-MH battery' labels on.

    Batteries, specifically new alkaline metal, nickel metal hydride (NiMH), nickel cadmium (NiCd) and zinc-air Packaging guidelines: Must be new and sent unopened in their original retail packaging. Surround with cushioning material e.g. bubble wrap.

    Apologies HenGus, I was slightly incorrect as the batteries you have are not 'new' (we obviously only supply new items) but the guidlines for 'electronic items sent with Ni-MH' is slightly different to the requirements for 'Ni-MH batteries' sent on their own - http://www.royalmail.com/personal/he...Goods-overseas

    Electronic items sent with new alkaline, nickel metal hydride (NiMH) or nickel cadmium (NiCd) batteries - Must be new and sent unopened in their original retail packaging. Surround with sufficient cushioning material to protect each item from damage. Wrap each item, including plugs, individually. Place item in a rigid container and cushion to avoid movement. Any equipment sent with batteries or cells must be secured against movement within the outer packaging and must be packed to prevent accidental activation. The sender’s name and return address must be clearly visible on the outer packaging.

    I should have looked at this and included it in the requirements.

    Richard - no apology needed. Our local Post Office always asks so I take the easy route and I just avoid sending anything with batteries.

    How is this for service? Another order placed on evohome shop at 1731 yesterday, order delivered to me at 1201 today! Amazing stuff.

    I just had a brief look and it looks like the table stand is easily hackable to make it a wall mount. I had done this with the old one too before the wall mounts were available, by buying a cheap spare from ebay. This one seems even easier to modify and doesn't appear to need any modifications.

    No problem!

    You will find by 'hacking' the ATF800 stand/dock it will give you a really flimsy wall plate and the plate will bend when screwed against the wall stopping the controller sitting against it. The ATF600 comes with a support plate at the back to stop it flexing when you tighten the screws.

    I'm thinking of using the back plate and power supply from the old wall mount on the new flimsy plate. Do you think that will work? Rather try and reuse what i have than spending some more money and then the desk stand never be used.

    The two are different sizes so won't work. The front piece is identical to the ATF600, its just the fact you are missing the 'stiffy'.
