Fuck fuck fuck!!! Tonight when I was fixing the 7’up light to my handlebar one of the exposed soldering pads on the control switch just touched the positive connector coming from the battery.
A brief flash of light and that was that. Say good bye to at least $50 of hardware, hours of glueing, soldering and assembly. Now I have to order a new MaxFlex from Taskled. That will be at least a couple of weeks of waiting – provided that they are in stock and Danish Customs don’t snatch them at the airport…..
Note to self: Be very careful when using heat shrink. Be sure to cover EVERY FUCKING MILLIMETRE of exposed copper wire!!!
Lesson learned the hard, stupid and expensive way 🙁
