That's what I hope for. Bintel offer me refund but I told them I will accept replacement when they receive new lot of cameras from Orion. Most likely reason for Peltier burning is (apart from overvoltage - impossible in my case as I'm using battery) bad thermal contact with heatsink. Northern Hemisphere got winter now, I just wonder if more of similar failures will pop up in the summer.
