|Thread: Lipo fire|
What do you perceive as the danger of doing a non balance charge without the balance lead connected ?
I did as you suggested and got one hit from the search. Opening the link I was taken to a 112 page document entitled "Lithium-Ion Batteries Hazard and Use Assessment "
It is not clear to me how relevant it is to Lipos. What is the relationship between Lion and Lipo batteries and are the dangers the same ?
Has anyone here got any experience of a Lipo bag being used in 'anger', ie, the Lipo(s) inside it caught fire for whatever reason ?
I keep my Lipos, admittedly only 2 and 3S low capacity ones, in the detached garage. They are in a shallow terracotta flowerpot but that is the only precaution I take when charging or storing them. I store them at about 3.8V per cell and charge at a maximum of 2C, usually less so they are fairly well treated.
I have been considering getting and using a Lipo bag or two but do they actually provide any protection and, if so, how ?
|Thread: HobbyKing currency issues|
I wouldn't have a problem if it switched to the .com site and showed the prices in UKP but it doesn't switch and stays in USD. If I log onto the .com site I can change the currency.
The problem seems to occur when using Chrome. If I use IE then clicking on the Currency button opens the .com site and I have to log on but at least I can change currency.
The currency converter button does not seem to work on the .co.uk site. It refreshes the page but offers no currency list. On the .com site it does offer a list of currencies including GBP
Stupid or what ?
