    Putting a battery in the wrong way really does destroy it..

    Did it last night to my Vaporshark rDNA by accident.
    The nasty smell is still lingering in the room.

    From the view on the screen it is still working normally but it's really buggered.
    It'll fire but very weakly. And it stinks.

    I'll get a new one but to save myself from doing something stupid again, I'll charge it via USB only.
    Evolv, reverse polarity protection in the next one eh?

    That's a bummer! Cannot believe a VV/VW manufacturer that does not include polarity protection in their device!

    no reverse battery protection on the DNA boards. will be on the new boards they are bringing out along with temp indication
    contact vaporshark, they may offer to replace the board ( at a cost )

    To complicate things even more, the battery goes in upside down.
    That's what did it.
