have two full charged lipos and no discharger

I bought 2 second hand lipos and the guy mailed them to me fully charged. I didn't get my charger discharger yet. It should be here in 2 days. Is this going to be a dangerous situation to leave these full charged for a few days?

Can you put them in the device you intended on using them in and burn some of that charge off?

Not built yet. I was acquiring parts and the batteries were one of them.

I guess i will put them someplace safe outside until I can discharge them, and let the chips fall where they may.

Hopefully they are good but I hope you didn't pay much for them.

Go to auto supply store and pick up a tail light bulb. Two pieces of wire and a battery connector and you have a discharger.

As cheap as batteries are I don't understand buying used ones.

If you let them sit around fully charged for very long they won't be useful by the time you have something to use them for.

Surely you have some sort of 12V equipment you can use to discharge them?
