    Is the tabbing in the module itself the weak link when it comes to overcurrent issues? It looks to me to be a lot lighter than the cables themselves.

    I don't know--But it seems possible. Also the bypass diodes are another weak spot (undersized, poor to non-existent heat-sinking, in my opinion).

    Here's a couple pics of burnt tabbing. Presumably not from an overcurrent issue but from Kyocera's lead free solder problem.
