    Lightbulb Battery Storage Solution

    Thought I'd share this purchase with you guys, I've been wondering how I can safely store my Lipo (I have planes/helis/trucks including e-revo) you can imagine I have ton of LiPos all around the house.

    Found this semi- fireproof safe for $33 in Amazn incl shipping that fits all my LiPos easily sleep better a night. Let me know if you guys have better solutions.

    good to see you are thinking on the safe side of things, sorry here is the but. If one batts has a problem it could take out all the batteries. I built a charge~storage box with a sliding lid & dividers to keep the batts separate..
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    Yup, I thought about that as my next move, dropping in dividers/plates.

    I have two battery bags. A smaller one I use when charging and an 11x13" battery bag for storage

    Especially returning from a ride with.some hard hits gives me extra protection when they are on my trunk!

    I went to my local army surplus store and picked up an ammo box to store my lipos. Cheap investment for peace of mind.

    Why would you want to remove the lettering on an ammo box? I love the fact that mine says 7.62 on the side! People look at me weird when I carry it through campus though.

    people around here would think you were in the military carrying that around as there are tons and tons of vets here. I should ask a few people see if they have them still in their junk piles.
