Did I Kill It?

Did the magic smoke come out? That's a definite clue.

Shhhhhhh it's an industry secret that electronics are powered by smoke, which is why when you let the smoke out they stop working.

Have you looked on BEP's website to see if your model is one of those they show connection diagrams for?
Most stuff has polarity protection.
