So, I have an ingenious plan to fix it. I'll solder it.

in fairness to me, they never mentioned that requirement in the datasheet.
LOL! I guess that *sorta* points to the design's robustness. That's a good thing!

Freebeard - yes, I've seen the video. It was a good review. This whole discussion I was attempting to bring up was trying to get folks to step back from the problem and **really** understand what was physically happening. I mean feel it. Unfortunately, I'm not that good at communicating, so the point was missed. I'm happy to see a couple folks understood my point, but they already knew what was going on...
