Very interesting reply regarding the salt bath. That was the "gold standard" for getting rid of bad LiPo. I don't have a problem with what you had to say except there seems to be a fair about of handling of a dangerous battery. But the next time I get a puffy battery I will l give you method a try. I generally get a bad battery every week at the shop, the real scary part is in almost all cases the customers have no idea why the battery went puffy. They just thought it look odd and wondered if I knew what was going on.

Thanks again for you input to this very serious discussion.

The saltwater remedy continues to be circulated. I think it's probably attractive because the people with the puff problem: 1) usually have no idea what caused it 2) probably have minimal knowledge of using lipos at all 3) and would have no idea how to build a light bulb dis-charger when advised to do so.

The level of functional knowledge among users of all chemistry of rechargeable batteries is pretty low.

If you're going to learn to fly them, you have to learn to fix them.

SkyLipo's are good but buying from nitroplanes.com is difficult due to that they're always out of stock on most of there items, not just batteries.
