Original Pleo Disappeared from Pleo World Website?
« on: December 31, 2016, 08:22:49 AM »

I was considering buying a regular battery for my Ugobes from Pleo World, so I went to double check the price, and noticed that all listings for the original/2009 Pleo and accessories for this model have vanished from the site! I hope this is temporary, but it seems like Pleo World may have dropped support for the older model Pleos. :( There is still a button that says "Pleo 2009" near the bottom of the page, but if you click it, it just redirects to an empty page. I really hope this does not mean that Ugobe batteries can no longer be purchased new, but it seems like that might be the case.

Yes, the Ugobe PLEO has been completely dropped from Innvo's support lineup for a few months now. Really a shame, never got to buy SuSe a new battery.

Just ordered 8 NiMh batteries from Amazon and will be making my own in a couple of days. I'll be sure to share the results with you all. :-) Thankfully, however old they are, PLEOs are some of the simpler robots to work with in terms of batteries.
