The box itself weighs approx 500g.
Has a google and looks like no one else have suggested it.
Some plastics keep putting out the plasticisers which screw up adheisives over time and they go back to being gummy and will fall off. Never tried an android TV box but the 3m strips hated the plastic on some photo frame type display box that I tried sticking to the wall. You could see where the strip was on the box it changed the surface gloss as well.
Just make sure that you clean it all with isopropyal alcohol first, the straight stuff not the crap that bunnings pass off as it calling it a surface cleaner. I had to get a liter of it from miter 10 to get the pure stuff.
My little media player has been stuck to the back of the TV using velcro for about 4 years now, but thats only about 100grams.
you should be fine, just follow richms' advice
Just bumped into this one:
Seems like a very reasonable price.
Rookie question: Will I be able to mount it to a TV wall mount? Ideally I would like to keep it separated from the TV (in case it gets hot).
I've ordered this TV wall mount:
question is will your remote still work if its tucked right in behind?
One downside to the 3m strips is, if the box puts out enough heat to loosen the adhesive, its gonna fall off the wall.
(Also, went in to Jaycar. Product discontinued) I went to their website and tried to order it anyway. Worked a treat and 5 mins later I received an email, stating that I could pick it up from my local store (Glenfield). The guy who earlier the same day told me that the product was discontinued, did look at bit puzzled.
Hopefully by having a mount, which keeps the Android box separate from the tape, it should resolve the issue of it dropping off, when it gets hot.
