Be interesting to talk with people who have run them for long periods of time.... perhaps even seen a failure...

Well that would be cool if I could somehow prevent the possible Event Horizon that may occur during a failure. Add a filter or something.

My last VR failed in a way most of our OEM's didn't...one diode shorted hard to the VRR chassis. The other diodes would short in a thermal runaway scenario. Acted like battery was dead. Once cooled, it would behave for a while until the next failure ( about 30 mins).
