Can anyone who has one of these tell me what the shiny black disc component just above the purple lithium battery compartment is, and what values it is? My dad's has fried this component to crispy charcoal.

Some checking indicates it may be a metal oxide varistor, about 10mm diameter, but all the part numbers are burned away. Thanks for any help you can give me.
