    LiPo Charge Bag

    Who all uses LiPo bags to charge? Or do you use an alternative? Or just let them charge in the open?

    I used to use lipo bags, but it's awkward charging 4 batts and using a bag.
    Now i just charge on the kitchen table and put my trust in the charger, I do stay nearby though just incase. I know who makes the charger but i don't know who makes the components for the charger.
    I still store/carry them in the bag.
    Guide books aren't part of the packaging.

    I used to put in lipo bag and inside steel toolbox to charge. Now I just put in toolbox and watch it without the lipo bag. I just watch for any puffing, erratic voltage changes and not being overcharged for each cells. But I do use lipo bag inside steel toolbox for storage and transport. I know its overkill lol. I just do it in case.

    I charge all 4 of my lipos on the kitchen counter and store in a lipo bag on the kitchen counter. Don't be stupid use your head follow manufacturers instructions and you will be fine.

    I charge and store my batteries in a lipo safe bag.

    I never charge if I'm leaving my house, but sometimes I get side tracked with kids and household duties, so I feel better knowing they are in the bag charging.

    What Lipo bags do ya'll use? I like being on the safe side also and I don't have a bag yet but I have batteries on the way. So I'll order a bag and charge the batteries carefully until it gets here.

    I'm using the Traxxas bag. I love the massive TRAXXAS lettering on it too.

    Mines voltz. Stick with brand name bags they're Kevlar, cheap brands are white asbestos.

    I'm relatively new to this RC thing, even more so to the Lipo thing, and at the advice of the hobby shop I use I grabbed a Thunder Power "Lipo-Safe" charging/storage bag. It was inexpensive and after watching the YouTube video's on batteries blowing up in the bags, it seems worth the small amount of money to be safe.

    I use an HPI lipo bag and I got a balance lead extension wire from SPC racing...It's 9 inches long and it helps get the battery down in the lipo bag easier...

    not trying to hijack the thread but was wondering if it is safe when using them for storage is it safe to store more that one battery in a bag?
