power boost 1000c overheats

by Lduck on Sat Feb 09, 2019 5:48 pm

Hi, I am building two pocket pi grrls for me and a friend. After I finished the first one, I plugged it in and realized it was getting really hot and the screen wouldn't turn on. So I disconnected the power boost 1000c and hooked up the other one I had and it works fine. i was wondering if i could get a replacement or would i have to buy a new one?

Post a photo showing the component side of the PowerBoost that failed please. 800x600 images usually work best.

Do you know generally where the board got hot?

Thank you.

What resistance do you see between BAT and GND, and between VS and GND?
