    Lipos exploding questions

    When do lipo batterys normally blow up? I just got my lipo bag. My chords from my charger Are not long enough to be charging with them in it. Is that still safe?

    Cords.


    Some people get charge extensions...
    I personally don't use a LiPo bag at all... I choose to watch my cell health extremely closely with a cell checker. I check cell voltage before I hook it up and after I take it off from anything.

    LiPo's don't blow up under normal circumstances. They usually have to be very severely abused to do such a thing. But, to get one to blow I have seen people deliberately overcharge them, stab them with nails, shoot them with arrows, ect.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Follow manufacturers instructions. Store them in a lipo bag. Most importantly use your head and don't be STUPID and you will be fine. When I went lipo I was worried about all the horror stories. I store mine on the kitchen counter in lipo bags with out worry.
