There is a spectrum of attitudes toward these cells - from the paranoid to the cavalier.

I think the proper perspective is near the middle ground - more cautions that whanderson, and less paranoid than eliminating the cells.

Knowing that there can be serious problems when LiPoly cells are operated outside safe parameters is paramount, as is following appropriate precautions.

I use and am quite satisifed with my LiPoly batteries, but I understand that they can be hazardous under the right (wrong) conditions, so I make sure they are never charged unattended, always double check my settings and quarantine any pack that is subjected to crash loads before placing it in a vehicle or my home.

You milage may vary, but if you become complacent with these cells, experience has shown that can bite you.
