Would I know if I punctured my battery?

I don’t really want to remove the wraps to check. Would my mod work if they were leaking a bit?

1. If you think your battery is damaged, this case leaking. DON'T USE IT.
2. Why do you think it is punctured and how would it get punctured?

Check your wraps - if they are in tact should be fine

I drop my mods every single day and no problems. And I am a mech user

iirc, the entire casing is "negative", so.. I dunno what you expect to see - a hole? If you punctured thru to the anode part, I'd be ducking&covering, (or holler 'GRENADE!' and loft that thing to the concrete.

If it's damaged, don't use it at all.
If you tore the heatshrink-sleeve, don't use it until you replace it. (caveat: I've used scotch-tape as a temp-fix until sleeves arrived)

Without pics, arrows and more data - this is about all the advice that applies.

EDIT: ahh, you dropped the whole mod - @JuicyLucy would be dead-on, then.

You will be OK. I have drop them off a car hood and they were fine. As said above if wraps are good you are good.

Yeah I’m sure it’s fine. I just noticed they were kind of wet but it smelled like juice. Yeah the wraps are fine so I’m sure it’s fine.

otoh, we could give it the Witch Test:

Toss them in a pond/lake: if they sink, they were OK - if they float, they are witches.. In disguise!

You shouldn’t make fun of that. Witches are a real problem that some people have to deal with.
Yes you are correct, I have to deal with my sister once in a while. I still think she is a witch or says she is..
