Some have tried that!

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.

@gleneagles Yes, indeedy.. you even lost the headphone socket as well ! ! ! ..  Cheesy

 

However,.. it seems they have fixed the "glitch" that stopped their wireless earbuds from working  ! ...
