The problem with shelf space is that it has to be bought, so roll-out will probably be slow at best.
I was thinking that a drug store chain would have been preferable, but that would probably come at a price premium for shelf space.
That said, more people roam through a grocery store so maybe it will work out as a good entry point after all.
There's a lot of smartphones out there that need cleaning. Getting the products inside retail stores is a good move.
It means that the Loxus product would drain the UC during housekeeping loads and could lead to needing a jump to recharge it.
It's the hubris of bean counters. They make the big bucks, so they think that they can run things without the technical types. It would almost be worth it to see them fail, but they are so full of themselves that they would never admit to it being their own fault.
Yes, extra wiring is required to keep the UC from draining while the trucker is enjoying his TV and fixing a cup of coffee during his rest-up to keep from overextending his driving hours (per government regulation).

So how is this jump-start button wired-in if it's just a drop in replacement?

"SME Instrument grants are awarded to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises that are EU-based or established in a country associated to Horizon 2020, with the objective of helping them grow and internationalize."
I still remember in the fall of 2000, after they developed a practical way of splicing fiber-optic cables, the price shot up to $192/share. Then they sold the technology without informing the stock holders. The price per share took a long slide back down to around $5/share after that.
