    Shorted out battery

    Hey guys, I've run into some trouble with a battery.

    Soldered xt60 connections on the wrong way around plugged into controller turn the battery on battery made a pop sound and does not work now.

    Is the battery saveable? (It does have a bms)
    Will the controller be ok?

    Rest assured I'm feeling like the biggest idiot right now

    There "might" be a fuse but it's also quite possible you popped the BMS.
    You're gonna have to do some surgery unless you can check the battery independent of the bike and controller.

    How do you know it's not just the controller that is not working?

    The battery itself is probably OK.

    If it's the BMS you can get a replacement. Could also just be a wire or connector that melted.
