Test diving the NiTek X in cold weather brought a few points to my attention. If it is extremely cold the computer may not come on until the weather warms up. I discovered this after leaving my X in the back of my truck when it got down to 18 degrees. This is a function of the battery quality so we are changing to Duracell batteries since they actually publish their operating temperature range. Some people have noticed the battery cap o-ring may be slightly exposed, don’t worry it is sealed. The next run of NiTek X parts will include replacement battery caps for all the beta units. The new cap will be black like the Fischer cap side with a knurled grip for easy access with no tools. Be sure to register your NiTek X online and we’ll let you know about any available updates.
