Pi PMIC failure - experiences?

In between my adventures with DSF one of my Raspberry Pi 3B+ died. This happened with the board idle in its case, over night while I was sleeping so I'm pretty confident in ruling out shorting of pins as seems to be the common cause https://hackaday.com/2019/06/12/shorting-pins-on-a-raspberry-pi-is-a-bad-idea-pmic-failures-under-investigation/
Anyways, AliExpress seems to offer the chip in question despite hackaday suggesting its not available for purchase, with feedback saying its the real deal.
Anyone have any experience with failures or repairs of this?
