I've been wondering the same thing because the ammo cans are usually waterproof with a fairly good air tight seal. I've also wondered if the lipos should be stored in a non-conductive container. Will be waiting for some answers.

Lipo storage box


Yes, let's see what comes up. After reading this thread, I've resorted to lining the box with bubble wrap and layering all my lipos in layers of bubble wrap to avoid any punctures or knocks and keep any contacts away from the metal sides. I don't want to end up as a lipo statistic. I purchased a couple of second hand lipos a while ago, but my personal decision is only to buy new from now on, as the history is just not known otherwise, and a nasty could await. Regards - Rick

Kind of amazing. It wasn't more than a few years ago, the general concensus was that the fire potential of LiPos was something Chicken Littles were making up. Now, here's some numbers to show that they need careful treatment.

It is true that Lipo batteries need careful treatment. From many videos, learn that if
U use it in a improper way, it will catch on fire. Treasure it!

I also have 3 ammo cans. Would like to know if we should drill several GAS FIRE EXCAPE HOLES IN THE CAN.

What's the best charger for under $100 that can charge 4S and 5S 5000mah lipos safely, efficiently, and fast?

Thanks

Ammo cans and holes


Seems there's not much input on the subject of ammo cans, so I'm going to drill hole in mine. I can't see the benefit of water tightness, as I'm not exposing to water. I think I'd rather have my smoke alarm go off in any case. A bit of smoke is the worst it could do, so long as you keep the holes away from walls perhaps. Maybe drill holes ontop, so the only way for heat/flames to go is up, and make sure you store the can with nothing on top. That's my 2 cents worth anyway
