Re: Reverse polarity diode circuit

Put a alarm in the case with a diode so if the polarity is wrong it will annoy the crap out of you and everyone else near you

The better news, you can get them all day long from Tayda for 16 cents each. But they only have 119,418 of them in stock.   To the US, shipping from Tayda is only a week for their slow boat shipping. Tayda's minimum order is $5, so for another $3 and change you can get that replacement nano!

The good news: I just ordered a mega-munch of 3A, 30V polyfuses that I'd
be happy to share for $1, including domestic shipping.
The bad news: They're coming from China, so will likely be several
weeks. I'll make a post here after they've arrived.

Yup, a Polyfuse works great.
Can add a resistor and red LED across it as an idiot light so you know
when to  execute the dope-slap.
(Can also do that for a fuse)

Though Farhan is looking for stuff that's easy to scrounge, doubt a
Polyfuse will make it into the next rev.
A small diode for both reverse protection and overcurrent protection on
the main rig might be the best bet.
