RE: Ultimate Guide to Lithium Polymer Batteries

Now that the "Ultimate Guide to Lithium Polymer Batteries" has us scared to death (can we spell paranoia?) let us immediately puncture our Lithiums and throw them in salt water. If we don't do this we are going to die!!! Please don't misunderstand me! Lithiums are different from NiCDs and NIMH batteries and the misstreatment of Lithiums can be most devistating. If the temperature of a Lithium exceeds a certain point, a chemical reaction starts that can't be stopped. This leads to the possibility of fire. If Lithiums arn't abused and kept below this critical temperature they work just fine. The bottom line is don't abuse them and follow the manufactuer's instructions for charge and discharge.
