See this, and the email of 20 Feb 18, posted below.
I was wanting another couple of beans to mate with remote sensors to talk back to bean+'s, but none in stock. As they have not 'restocked' since, I have zero confidence that beans still live.
PunchThrough seems dead to me.
I got some of these, but haven't actually used them in anger yet.

Thanks for contacting Punch Through. We don't have a restock date for the Beans yet and aren't planning on discontinuing it in the near future, but you can sign up to be alerted via email when the LightBlue Bean and Bean+ are back in stock.
The Bean is out of stock, but you can still get the Bean+ on Seeed: https://www.seeedstudio.com/LightBlue-Bean%2B-p-2740.html
Thanks for your patience,

I am doing a project with the Bean & Bean+ paired, and was looking to get a second Bean to go with the other Bean+.
However everywhere is out of stock.
Is it now a dead end?
