Man, don't know what happened here. Chip in if you have thoughts. One of my nicer builds, built with dgrad's advice and council, is a Sony w230 build with as much as 6 AA's for EP, using a lcd board. Always performed extremely well. I get it ready to go out with a freshly charged BG1 in the cam and all six EP's (two separate three bat holders) and take it to camp, probably set in the cam case for about a week. I open it up to turn on the board and there is slimy gunk all over the back of the case. At least two of the bats had leaked, maybe three. The BG1 was dead, the three AA's in one holder (the leaky ones) were dead, and the other three down to .09 volts. I haven't a clue. Only guess I have is that maybe one of the AA's was bad (they were new, and no I did not check them) and that the BG1 tried to back charge and that the others got over charged and blew and the other three kept charging the BG1 and it kept trying to charge the bad bats, and so on. Any other thoughts?
