Re: No, it's where you draw the line...

Doesn't strike me as odd at all.

It has to do w/ shipping, import duties, VAT's and the way the subsidiaries are structured. It may well be that the individual countries are free (within a range) to set their own prices as they see fit. We see that all the time (like certain printers being much more expensive in Asia/Australia than they are here in the US).

And, honestly, if they are installing a new 'controller board', $25 isn't much for the board and the labor to install it. It may well be that the older board was designed for the impedance and voltage (in an analog fashion) of the NiCd power supply but the new one is 'computer controlled'.
