I can testify to that. I was attempting to pull it out of the end of all
that bubble-wrap Roger taped around it, and when the tape on the back end
that I didn't know was stuck to the end of the pack finally came loose, it
went flying about 3 feet, out and down to a concrete floor in my basement.
Knocked the eb101 out of its socket, but no other damages, not even a dimple
on the case corner.
