You may be interested to know that some of the chargers notably SJ/Fusion (same casing different names) and Hyperion have a "store" program. This lets you just discharge down to 60% which is reckoned to be the ideal and the program cuts off at that point.

I might also suggest that almost all of the scares or fires have been down to the basic refusal of modellers to either read the instructions or take care in use. I have actually seen someone who had a puffed pack choose to connect it up to a charge in the assumption that he might be able to do another charge and another flight. One wonders if he does that in his house as well as at the field and yes, he was stopped.

Always treat all LiPos and other packs with respect but if you have good equipment you should not need to be scared.
