I wanted to contact customer support, but says to post here.
Ive had a SunAirPlus for some time, and last week got a SunControl to use with the SkyWeather kit. Im using a 6v 1000mA solar panel with the 10W zener that I received before I received the board (It came in 2 shipments due to backorder)
Today, The battery charged, as with other days, but the kit went offline. I went out to check it as I could not SSH into it to reboot (if that was the error) and noticed that the big (6R8) inductor?? was extremely hot to touch.
Solar input was good, I assume charging, but all output is now dead via battery, solar, or usb and the coil heats up to an excessive heat within a short time.

Well, ive had the SunAirPlus since... uhhh. maybe 2016? and im running it again now since the SunControl died. I only had it for a couple of days before the failure. I really dont know. The SunAirPlus has 828mA @ 5.19v according to Blynk at time of typing this. I really dont know. All I did was switch the board out after the failure and the SA+ has been happily running since.
