Dear Hak5 staff, Hi my name is Evert from The Netherlands Some time ago i purchased the WIFI PINEAPPLE MARK V ULTRA BUNDLE 7800
This bundle is perfect for my pentesting needs.
I have never worked with the pineapple before so i took some weeks to know it a little bit better.
After a wile i wanted to test out the Pineapple Juice 7600 but yeah...
I can't change the plug on the battery adapter, but i can on the one of the Wifi Pineapple. The adapter of the Wifi Pineapple can't charge the 7800 battery. Now here is the problem,
I bought a power plug for this situation so i can use the adapter that came with the Battery
I left it charging overnight when suddenly i woke up to smell a terrible odor. I got out to investigate to find out that my battery was smoking, i panicked and pulled out the adapter. Status report: Battery charger: works Ability of the battery to charge: fried Battery switch: works Battery on indicator: works Battery level indicator is always fully on when button is pressed: fried
I am surprised this happened because a power plug converter US -> EU can't be the causer of this. Maybe it was a faulty adapter or Maybe it was the battery i don't know. Either way i can't enjoy the mayhem of a battery powered Pineapple :( I hope someone can help me.
Greeting from The Netherlands Evert
