I managed to break my Alien Power Pack (8S4P) this morning
I was at the last stage of an All Terrain dual motor setup, when I had incorrectly soldered an XT connector to my vesc the wrong way around, which fried the battery when i turned it on.
The battery now has 4 burn marks up the side where the cells have melted the plastic cover, and the level indictor is only reading 5%. My main worry right now is that the battery will not turn off. I just left it outside the house hoping the battery will eventually drain itself to 0%.
Does anyone know if the battery pack is fixable or it any of the parts of it salvageable? If not, does anyone know how to dispose of the battery in the UK?
