    A FZ G1 is headed my way from an ongoing trade situation.

    I currently am looking for simple ideas for a kickstand.
    I dont want anything that makes it thicker unless someone gives me a smoking deal on an Ikey keyboard.

    I found tempered glass screen protectors for the G1.
    Ordered two.
    $9.40 with free ship. It's worth a try compared to the $60 for a Panasonic protector.
    I have one on my Galaxy S5 and really like it.

    I swapped out the Intel 6235n wifi for a Intel 7260ac.
    Definate improvement. Although I have not managed to get bluetooth working. I did read somewhere that maybe the pin mod would work to enable BT.
    ------------------------------------------
    I tried win 10 on it. It ran ok, but I could not calibrate the digitizer properly, so I went back to win7.
    Maybe win 10 would be ok if I did an upgrade install from win 7 instead of a clean install.
    -------------------------------------------------
    I bought a smart card reader for it.
    I have no need for the smart card, but it is usb, so maybe I can mod in something with that usb port.
    --------------------------------------------
    I did buy a used 9 cell extended battery for it.

    Battery bar estimates over 12 hours runtime under standard power settings.
    Panasonic sent me a brand new replacement for the original recall battery too.
