Looks like my surge protector a couple years ago. No surge - just connection overheated and melted the plastic around it...nice hardwired unit inside the bay too. Gave up and bought a plugin unit.

All these puns are going to get me upset enough to hit someone. Then I'll end up charged with battery and have to spend some time in a dry cell...
