    Fried lipo charger anyone?

    Am I the only one lucky enough to fry their lipo charger? The other day while I was at school a thunderstorm rolled through and my mom said a bolt of lightening hit the ground in my neighbors yard, no damage, except everybodys garage door openers freak out now. So the charger was plugged in my dads garage that separate from the house. The whole circuit the charger was hooked into was dead. On that circuit the lift was plugged into a gfci. The weird thing was the breaker wasnt tripped. But anyways my dad probably reset the gfci and my charger wasnt on. And a clicking was coming from it. I was lucky enough to not have a battery hooked up to it at the time. So RIP Thunder AC6 you served me well
