Buying supported robots

The recommended source to buy a supported robot is wherever it is cheapest. In general, when buying something, you should always use price comparison websites, shopping communities, check Aliexpress etc.

It has come to my attention that there are other people trying to make money off Valetudo by using it to get people to click on their affiliate links.

If you want to support the project, consider donating using Github sponsors instead of using affiliate links as they are part of the advertising industry, which some people might describe as bad.

Germany

For price comparison, check out geizhals.de or idealo.de. Also, don’t forget mydealz.de and of course Aliexpress.

If Amazon is something that you like to use, here are some affiliate links for it:
