OK My RX100 M1 just imploded with a bang

No joke: 5 minutes ago i was playing around(indoors, completely dry environment) with my sony rx100 m1 when i suddenly hear a loud bang. I look around and the camera, which i`m holding, turned blank. No response from the lens. The battery inside was a Patona which i charged yesterday. I exchange it for the original sony battery but nothing happens except the fact that the camera starts heating up where the menu button is and there is a smell of burned plastic coming from inside.

I removed the battery and that`s about it. It`s obvious that the rx100 is dead and the motherboard is completely fried. As for the origin of the loud bang i heard, i can`t imagine what happened. Maybe...a capacitor blew up?

So that`s 100 dollars down the drain. I won`t lie, it was a good camera.

Sony RX100
