    Hi Guys and Gals,
    I have a heap of micro and c type rubber dust covers. Do you think it would be ok to plug say a Renova Zero up or would that depend on the device and whether it vents the battery from this port?
    Just thought it might be a good idea to plug them up to stop dust etc.
    What's your thoughts ?

    Good point but I haven't heard anyone using them. Could always spray them clean with electronic cleaners.

    I see no problem plugging a USB port with a rubber dust cover. Battery venting is a very low level pressure release, pressure buildup is minuscule, should not be a concern. Thermal runaway is the event one should be concerned about, for depending on the battery several liters of gas can be expelled within an extreme short duration. I question the functionality of any vent hole in such a case. Should your pod's battery enter a state of thermal runaway, I suspect it will blow that rubber stopper out if it does not burn and melt the device.
