Living in an apartment, I have always been worried about how to manage my LiPo batteries – especially since I started performing my extensive battery tests.
There are plenty of examples online in which simple LiPo bags fail to provide enough protection in the case of a fire. Don’t forget that the flames themselves are not the only danger in these cases: heat transfer can ignite nearby objects and the toxic smoke can both harm yourself and fill the area with nasty substances.
Alternatives such as DIY ammo boxes with filters and holes work fine as well, but heat transfer through the box remains a serious issue. On top of that, I couldn’t find ammo boxes cheap enough locally, to make it worth the DIY effort. It is definitely a more spacious option though.
Just to be clear: I bought 2 BAT-SAFE boxes on my own, out of my own pocket, for peace of mind and safety. I use them both during charging / discharging, as well as for storing temporarily LiPo batteries in-between and after my tests. And I will probably get the XL version as well.
This is BEST FOR LESS: BAT-SAFE LiPo Fire safety box for battery charging – Let’s go!
