the cost... ...i'd be looking to get $20-25USD per populated board.
why so cheap?
well.. ..i know you will have to buy a few of your own parts (listed in what's NOT included above)

i've created a google form for you to fill out
https://goo.gl/forms/pzad5zLKZy9wjj5k1

NOTE: This is just an interest collection. If i get enough responses i'll create the short run

if i register for the collection of interest will i be notified if you start to sell the project

Correct!

The form is a short survey so I can eyeball the number of boards to get.

You will be notified of the schedule from submitting designs, board production, component population, shipping, testing, shipping to customer

Hope that helps

Case ?
Working on one.
The plexi is available in the github repo

The case would be an additional cost though. Maybe like $5-10USD

Does this board add load sharing to the TP4056? From what little research I've been doing on my GBA project, I don't think you can't play and charge at the same time with that board.
