@glnc222, is your information regarding the dock based on fact or just speculation?
For what it's worth, I cannot physically see any design changes in the contacts on the dock regarding the contact plates at all. Obviously I cannot vouch for the ic on the mini pcb inside the dock. Exchanging the PSU allows the new neato to dock without any issues. I've also noticed that the output amperage specified on the new power block is slightly different to the original even though both are specced at 24v. Looks like the new neatos have less draw than previous. Maybe this is an attempt at extending battery life by charging less aggressively? I also cannot see any "v2" docks being sold on the market. How do people know which one they are buying if they want a new one?
It would be useful if neato could make a statement about this and whether or not a psu change is sufficient.
Also, does neato have any compensation/exchange policy for purchased docks or indeed just PSUs if that is all that needs to be changed?
