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
Very disappointed to report my brand new Mk IV just released its magic smoke and is dead. I used a PoE Adaptor (working fine on my Cisco 7940) into the PoE port and within seconds there was a "crack" and a puff of smoke. It had previpusly been working perfectly via the power connector. I opened the box hoping it was a simple diode or cap - but unfortunately it destroyed a small IC. So it's now in the bin. 8-( Super-disappointed as I didn't do anything cowboyish. Please be very careful if you're looking to use PoE. If you're like me, you can't afford to just go and buy another one. 8( Cheers, Jason
