My build quality :p
I just got home to find the gentlemod mk1, sent back by fatboy, waiting for me. Most upsetting!
Let me remind everyone it suffered a catastrophic battery failure, that looks to be full vent and partial runaway of both cells. It was then plunged into the depths of a fountain.

After a quick look one thing became obvious.. the mod had not failed! Guess how I know..

 Can you believe it still works??!! 




There is some water damage, and minor cosmetic damage. The readout is not functioning correctly, as reported by paul and made worse by the water, cant see a conclusive reason for that right now so I'm going to do a partial tear down and give it a full probing, hopefully I'll find out how the battery failure happened and make sure it can't happen again.

I reckon you could fire that through a wall. It is solid.
Impressed that it survived a vent.

Impressed!

TVF tested battery info to be found here

RE: My build quality :p
Upsetting that you received it or upset that it had been bathed? or upset that it hadn't actually failed? or upset that I listened to Paul vs popping some batteries in it myself and testing it? Sad

Just glad it arrived....maybe the folks at the post office or customs examined it and fixed it? Smile

It does have a minor readout malfunction, and there must have been a reason for the battery failure so it's where it needs to be fb Wink
Upsetting that it looks like it did get fired through a wall! 
Absolute tank of mod! I'm kinda shocked how well it took that hit tbh.

RE: My build quality :p
It is home where it belongs, lol. Yes, it shocked me that it vented and withstood the balst without damaging my hand at all. Did not even get that hot TBH. My feeling is that something went amiss when shipping it because the readout was incorrect from the start. Of course there was no way I was going to test it after losing two batteries. And are you implying that I failed your mod ... not the mod failed me, lol. I'm calling my lawyer. Slander.
