Smart Power 2 toasted

Unread postby hans.ellegard » Mon Nov 06, 2017 7:25 pm

I just got my hands on the Smart Power 2 and set it up to power my Odroid C2. I checked that the DC plug cable was correctly connected to the terminal block (and I double checked), I connected the adapter to the Smart Power 2 and pressed the on/off switch. Nothing happened. Not a single LED lighting up, neither on the Smart Power 2 nor the C2. So I started searching through the forums for hints and after a while I heard a sizzle and the "L2" Smart Power 2 component was smoking. I pulled the power to the adapter and tried powering the C2 using only USB (skipping the Smart Power 2) but it was dead, not even a blink from the power LED.

WTF... how did this happen?

There's another thread dealing with a similar failure for the SP2. My post there describes the reason for the failure that I saw -- maybe it'll be helpful to you.
