  • Just got one of these from a reseller in Japan where I live. Disappointed to see no current output at all. Voltage is fine. Some old posts mention that this happened, and one guy blamed himself for damaging it… I know I can’t be certain, but I think it’s very unlikely I overheated anything. Used a 20 watt iron with 1.0mm dia. wire. I’m trying to measure small solar panel output @ 18V 1A max, hence the thin wire.

    But my question is, was this found to be a common fault? Or is the only likely explanation that I damaged the TI chip?

    I’m willing to buy another one if I get some idea of how likely it is it work if I’m EXTRA careful…

No public wish lists :(
