well I learned something today: nimhs and nicads are NOT safer than li-pos. sure, it's harder to set them off, but when you do, they REALLY blow! I was charging the nimh for this boat using my accucell 6, with the nimh in the boat, but didn't realize that I had set the wrong amperage (6 amps rather than .6) anyway, the battery blew, two of the metal caps from the battery cells came out the top of the boat (destroying the top of the boat in the process) and one I guess it blew just after the other 2) came out through the hole that the other two haf made in the top of the boat, then proceeded to fly across the room and bury itself in the drywall. i'll be getting another 7009 soon, and upgrading it to lipo immediately
