Thanks Jonathan, I’m surprised at 100m, I thought it was closer to 10m.


When you say “industrial” I’m assuming you mean that mobile phones are closer to 10m…… etc and no where near 100m.


Also rough poll…..we have 30,000 people on this email list, how many run Bluetooth radio full time…….feel free to pipe up but unless you are on the road a lot and use a Bluetooth headset I think like me you’ll have it turned off 99.9% of the time.


Thanks also for the poster who pointed out sealed battery….OMG worse than I thought with 1 year lifespan. Almost grounds for BBB to get involved.

Bluetooth mobile device radios  (class2)  have to support a minimum of 10M


The industrial 'class 1' radios can support up to 100M.


Bluetooth 4.0 is significantly more efficient for CPU and Power and works in background tasks.

Thoughts on how we as founders should position ourselves and our companies on what our startups can and cannot actually do?  Or “Forward looking statements be dammed and anything goes as lon
