And, unfortunately, from what I can tell, MTBF seems to have dropped.

If you where able to minimize the case on this to a micro format, and seal it very well after completion, this will definitely prevent any terminal/connector corrosion. And if sealed properly would in fact minimize overheating/water issues effecting the system as well.. just thoughts here nothing implemented yet so please don't flame me for this, oh salty ones ..
