Managed to burn one out plugging into some crappy USB hub.  When I plug it into a USB port Windows doesn't detect it and it starts heating up as if it is hashing, but it's not doing anything.  After about 45 seconds it is too hot to touch -- I've tried it on a couple different PCs and both do the same thing.  Just warning you all avoid those junk hubs...and if anyone wants it for decoration or whatever else it's a silver colored one....

I mean it's a known fact that you shouldn't buy one now. But maybe talk to fried? He might be able to refund you (not sure though).

I've had it for a month or so, no big loss as I never expected to make ROI anyway.

Frankenmint, sending you a PM....can get it in the mail tonight.

Ok I sent it to the address specified.  Take pride in knowing that YOUR erupter will be utilized by someone else and may be on the photo of a newspaper, magazine, or facebook page someday.  Be proud.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
