We want to inform you about our decision to increase prices of BuWizz 3.0 Pro and BuWizz 2.0 effective September 25th.
We have kept the price of BuWizz the same since first released five years ago. Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions, the costs of parts, services and shipping have risen considerably. In addition to the price increase, we are experiencing shortages and longer lead times for electronic components and delays in shipping. If we want to stay in business and be able to release new products we have in the pipeline, we have no choice but to raise the prices.
New prices are:
BuWizz 3.0 Pro 199€ (was 169€)
BuWizz 2.0 149€ (was 129€)
Prices do not include VAT for EU customers.
We are leaving a grace period of 7 days for all our fans to have the opportunity to purchase BuWizz bricks at the current price.
The price increase will be effective on September 25th.
New App update
We have released a new version of the BuWizz app on September 15th with the following benefits:
- Rename feature – you can now customize names of your BuWizz bricks so you can easily identify them – very useful if you have several
- Shake-to-wake feature – BuWizz goes into sleep mode after a certain period of inactivity. In order to wake it up, it is now enough to shake it, no need to press the button. Very useful if the BuWizz button is hard to reach inside your model
- New manager screen – shows BuWizz brick details: name, battery voltage, firmware version, reboot feature, test feature – useful to identify which BuWizz is which if you have several. Shake-to-wake and Rename features are also reachable in the Management screen
We sincerely hope you understand our decision.
Stay tuned – exciting new products are coming soon.
Thank you for your continuous support.
Your BuWizz Team
Will you also fix the bugs (e.g. with center steering) and release the bluetooth protocols so 3rd party apps like Brickcontroller2 can finally enable us to play qith gamepads again?
Yes. We will fix the bugs. Please send the issues to email@example.com. We have also offered the BuWizz App with support for LEGO Technic Powered Up HUB for download, on our Support page: buwizz.com/support
Does Buwizz 2.0 have shake to wake feature?
No. Just BuWizz 3.0 Pro.
Price increase not fair. Its already very costly.
We understand your concern, and that is why we have tried to keep the prices low for more than 5 years.
If you take into account what you get for your money, you may see that the price is fair. Because of the integrated Li-Po battery, high-end components and chips, a small form factor, BuWizz brick offer better performance, easy integration, and Advance App. This comes at a price. More than 100 components goes into every brick and prices of these skyrocketed, due to Corona’s economic disruption. Hopefully, you can understand our situation.
Für was ist der Anschluß ( speziell) an Buwizz 2.0 und 3.0?
Can you please better explain your question?
It would be nice to have a roadmap of what is the future plans of BuWizz app.
Do you have plans to add Bluetooth controllers support?
Yes. It is our future plans.
