Question
Turnigy Lipo Bunker-Lipoly Safety Charge Box(Thoughts Appreciated?]

Hello everyone,
The debate on safe lipo care will rage on & on..and at the end of the day following the basic safety advice as to be number one! but I just came across this product from Turnigy the Turnigy Lipo Bunker - Lipoly Safety Charge Box just wondered what folks thought about this box and it`s pro`s & cons?I am well aware of the many folk who sware by ammo boxes and Brinks boxes and so on.But for us in Europe where these things are not always easy to lay our hands on it would be very helpful for any input on this product.

Many thanks In advance

Regards Steve

Your link does not work.Try this one:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...strSearch=lipo bunker

A lot of negative comments. I think a couple of concrete blocks would work as well and be a lot cheaper.

The comments were about the LiPo box.

Thanks Glen

Hi Glen

Good to hear from you, so the lipo box is not a hit with folks, well that is why I asked the question and if the negs are so many,will go back to the stone/concrete outside charging

many thanks Steve

The comments are on the Hobby King web page under the listing for the LiPo box. Read them for yourself. You might have a different opinion from me.

Your money is much better spent on a quality lipo sack. These are high quality and made in USA and about the same price as that questionable box:

That works as long as you don't need it to be portable
