Be warned this was a Lipo fire.

Lipos don't start fires, people do... Very Happy

ALWAYS when charging do it in a fireproof container!

Well I had been talking to Christian about his vehicles (or what was left of them).

At the time he had an Elephant, a VK, and a JP that were the least damaged in the fire...
I had talked to him regarding those to be relocated to a good home here at the KW field and he offered them at shipping cost. Unfortunately I must have taken too long to respond...

The Elephant has been taken by someone else already...
The VK is getting rebuilt by Christian.
So a JP is avail (plus a bent Opal Blitz, and a hull of a Kanonenjagdpanzer).

Scared of Lipos? No. Cautious? Yes.

Ludwig's fire was caused during an unattended charging of Lipo Batteries. AKA, nobody home....

I actually have a BATSAFE for home charging, but otherwise charge my batteries outside (At an event, or while I am present).

After watching the video it would appear that nothing we have around the house woud stop the reaction taking place.

No I do not use Lipo's but have thought about.

I will stick with Nmh for now.

Those tests are extreme but accurate. It takes only a little more effort but the benefits of the lipo is huge. To each his own. The biggest I have is a couple of 3 cells. They are in their own ammo can.

And in each of those tests it states that they are overcharging the cell of a Lipo. (In the tests all of those Lipos were NOT balance charged BTW. They were purposely connected as a NiMH style connection).

So, use a good charger, stay present while charging...
