Hello, i had my dead official LattePanda Alpha power adapter laying around and before dispossing it i decided to open it and see where it failed and how it is constructed, i'm just dumping some images of the inside in case someone finds them usefull.

The adapter was pretty easy to open, it is was held with a little amount of glue or epoxy and using a thin metallic spatula i was able to pry it in a non destructive way.

It had a pretty bad meltdown in some resistors and i think in a voltage regulator, beyond repairability in any case.
