Safety of charging LIPO / LIFE batteries?


#1

Hi

Just a question - how many are thinking of safety when charging and storing batteries?

How many are storing or charging using a bag designed for this??

I know that these battery types can be quite dangerous if something goes wrong...

Thanks for the post and reminder of how dangerous LiPo battery charging can be. I knew about this but have been some what complacent when charging my batteries and this is a good reminder to do something about it.
