    Does anybody have one or any experience? I'm quite tempted as I like the loud colours, and more than anything the proposed functionality.

    The PreSale ended only a few weeks ago so they haven't started shipping yet. I open the ice luge will reach its threshold soon...

    I've been using my Powercurl for a week now and I have to say that it is very cool. I have noticed that after several hours of charging, it stays cool in the in the PowerCurl (not the hot brick) and the configuration of the grooves makes it really convenient to wrap and unwrap.

    They are offering the PC for 20% off and free shipping.

    They haven't updated the picture in their store to show the 2 grooves, one for the small cable and one for the big one.

    This link shows the extra grove called the "shelf":

    I have it.

    The orange color is a little different than shown on the site.

    The clip that holds the big cable to itself is not as good as the apple one for the smaller cable.

    The device does handily wrap the cable, but it makes your charger a rather large brick (it is 2'' thick), which depending on the space you are packing it into may or may not be better than the charger and a loose cable

    I found the clip to be a little spongy, but overcame that by "rolling" the clip onto the cable.

    As far as size, it depends on which unit you have. If you get the long 85w PowerCurl, then yes, it's huge. But the newer 85W is reasonable and works nicely in my incase bag. The 45w Macbook Air Powercurl is perfect if you need something on the go, which I am looking to get for carrying around with my MBP.

    Just received mine!

    I received mine today and I love it although as someone mentioned it takes some space to carry around.

    I hope the Scratch and Scroll will be ready to ship very early 2010.
