  • I plugged my regulated 5v power supply into a jack, then ran the +/– to my 5v Pro Mini’s VCC and GND. I really should have checked the polarity of the jack, but I didn’t and it was opposite of what I assumed. I plugged it in and the thing literally burst into flame. Does “Reverse Polarity Protected” not mean what I think it means?

  • Oops, wrong product page, I’ll repost in the proper one. Good thing I didn’t make the internet explode like my pro mini did!
