Contained somehow

Only thing I would add to this is that the pack needs to be "contained" somehow. I would suggest a lid on the dish or something similar.

The pack actually accellerated itself (I can only visualize a rocket-like reaction) and launched off of the charging bench. I did not see the disaster in motion so this is just a guess.

Again, I have no intention of changing battery types. I have several Li packs and really like their performance when it is controlled (well, as 'controlled' as RC planes get anyway).
