Electron Example Sketch

I was trying to use the example sketch for Blynk found here:

I scanned the code and added my auth token but the project fails to connect to the Blynk cloud. I am running 0.4.8 version firmware on the Electrons. If I push the Mode button while serial monitor is open, I see a rapid scrolling of Connecting to blynk-cloud.com:8842. So I updated the firmware on my Electrons (I have 2) to 0.5.3.Now not only does it not connect, I am getting an occasional Invalid Auth Token. I have rescanned the code and reloaded the sketch 3 different times with three different Auth Tokens, still no luck. I am using an iPhone v9.1 and my Blynk app is up to date.

I have run out of ideas!

Invalid Auth Token, means you have probably run into DNS issue.
Please try this exapmle, which we want to include with the next library update: https://github.com/vshymanskyy/blynk-library-spark/blob/master/firmware/examples/02_Particle_Electon/02_Particle_Electon.ino
