FIRE EXTINGUISHER!? Rubber suit!? HAHA

One of his earlier designs burnt up because of an error in his code on his microcontroller. He set the current limiting to 900amp (I think) when it was supposed to be like 450amp (or something). The mosfets had a bit of a problem handling that. Mine will be very safe. His is very safe now too (well it hasn't blown up yet). Don't worry!
