Hi again - another noob question:

What do you guys use if you are charging/discharging LiPo';s indoors?

TIA

I use the silver lipo bags on ebay but never leave the room when charging or discharging just to be careful.

I have 3 of them and I got to add from what I have seen on Lipo fires they are not going to do much more than give you a few seconds to throw it out the window or the like.

I keep saying to myself to get an old ammo box off ebay. you would need a little time to unplug if it goes off that a nice steel box would provide.

I use an old bbq lined with ceramic tiles - put the cover on (also lines with tiles) for storage.

Yes those silver sacks are what i use. They will contain the initial flare which is all they are designed for which is why you should always be in the room.

There is a lot of hysteria about lipo handling where common sense goes a long way.

All the lipo fires I';ve seen online are artificially created so in correct use the risk is very small.

Ammo box with the seal removed ....

And as for unplugging it i';d be grabbing the box and launching it ... one of the many connectors would break or unplug

You could store them in a simple metal cash box, this guy did a test and seems to contain the fire ok

If you want to be really careful, get a concrete building block, the kind with the holes in them.  Put it on a slab and put a slab on top for storage or when charging.  For an extra dimension of safety put poly bags filled with fine sand on the top of the block.  If the worst thing happens the bags melt and drop the sand on the flaming lipo.

This is a good idea if lipos are being charged indoors, like in a sport hall or perhaps at an event where lots of big batteries are being charged.
