    A little confused, watching the video, the guy fitting the unit does the Black wire first then the Red
    the wording on the screen says to fit the Red wire first then the Black?
    is the guy fitting it wrong or is the wording wrong?

      Hi Danny, it doesn’t really matter if you do the black or the red first. But it’s often advised to do the red first (and that’s what we wrote at the subtitles), that’s why the wording is different from the video.
      The important thing is to not to touch the nodes at the same time.

    Hi there. Just bought a db2. Is there any chance of battery drain or does it go into standby?

      Hi David, No it doesn’t drain the battery. The DB2 will automatically switch to the standby mode and it draws less than 20ma in standby mode.
