  • Compact Stand-alone Pod Style Miner (4x6x4in)
  • Very wide range of operation modes with preset ECO (quiet) mode and TURBO mode. 
  • 100-135+ MH/s of Scrypt performance per miner (+/- 5%)
  • Industry leading 1W/MH in ECO mode, and 1.4W/MH for TURBO (100-200 watts***)
  • Powered by a fully integrated Quad-Core A7 ARM based controller
  • First miner to be fully controlled over wifi, only cable needed is power! (this will be a Beta feature on launch..backup ethernet port is available as well). 
  • Clocks and Voltage is fully customizable by user with easy to use interface (no more pots!)
  • Industry leading 97% efficiency 12v power-stage, with 27 ASIC chips powered in a 3×9 parallel/serial power arrangement
