I almost had a fire last weekend http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=9903
In this case it was loose wires in the connecter falling out and shorting on a freshly charged pack.
Right now the battery is in a metal thermos, it's not swollen, but I don't feel comfortable trying to hook anything up to discharge it with the condition the wires are in. How should I dispose of it? Would a place like radio shack take it in the state it's in?
