Have you used the BEL before? How long would it take to charge a 3s Li-Po with the BEL since the vehicle has to be running to charge three cells? I have a ceramic charging box with a lid and sand in the bottom of it I built just for charging Li-Po's, I have tested it with an acetyline torch and after getting it hot enough to melt steel there was no problems, so unless they emit some kind of toxic gas ( which they don't unless they burst, that's why they say to carry saltwater!) I don't see it being a problem charging in the vehicle, but the 13 amp power source would definately be something I would plan on getting eventually. I am trying to talk my wife into the Apache but if she balks at the idea I will have to get the BEL.
