Well I am finally on my summer vacation. I was very excited to ride my board around the lake to where I am now. So I charge up the board, put on my gear, turn on the remote , turn on the remote , turn on the remote . Nothing happens. I am sure it was charged but hooked it to a charger anyway. The lights turned on but as soon as I disconnected it they turned off again. Anyway long story short(ish), I opened the remote and found the lipo battery swollen and one of its tabs corroded and broken.
I honestly don’t know how, since the board and remote has never come near water. So I am on vacation, Saturday afternoon, every store that could have something helpful is closed and I have almost no tools. Still there is no way in hell I will not get to ride my board so I took out my Leatherman and went to town.
The remote works and with 3500mAh capacity I won’t have to charge the battery till I get home and fix it properly.
