Chuwi Hi10 Pro "Power Surge"

Hi all. Not too long ago I had my Hi10 Pro plugged when all of the sudden Windows began showing a notification that there was a power surge. I immediately turned off my device but it already smelled like something had burned. I opened up my device to find that one of the pmosfet semiconductors had blown. I've been very unsuccessful at finding another chip to replace this so I can use my device again and was hoping to get some help here.

Please see the picture below for the blown chip. I believe the chip above it is the same exact kind.

Thanks!

Write an email to service@chuwi.com sent this photo. They will be able to help you although from what is seen in the photo it seems that there are more components burned.

Personally, for what these tablets cost, I think I'd just buy a new one and keep that one around for parts - you may have more issues than just that one chip.

Thanks for the reply. I've sent them an email and I'll keep my fingers crossed. I've gone over the board several times but that's the only component that has been affected. I haven't even had it for a year yet and I'd love to get some more use out of it if possible.
