  • I think I burned the MCP73831T component (it started smoking and now it gets REALLY hot whenever I plug in battery and turn it on; the plastic got kind of warped; I think I may have somehow shorted it?). The rest of the board seems to be working just fine so I'm not sure how worried I should be. Is it normal for this piece to be super hot (maybe I just didn't notice it earlier?) and if this is a problem - do you know if it's possible for me to buy a new MCP73831T and solder it on myself, or is it time to give up and buy a new board? Thanks for your help.

No public wish lists :(
