I blew up one of these packs earlier today.

Loading my car up with flight stuff it fell out of my hands and landed on the concrete. I inspected the pack and didn't notice any damage or dents (a quick glance is all it got, honestly) so I tossed it in my back seat and headed to the garage to grab my Tx.

A few seconds later I heard a loud *PUffff - hisssss, turned around, and found white smoke billowing out from the rear door. I ran to it and yanked the pack out by its wires and watched it burn on the driveway. Luckily there were no burns in the car, just a nasty smell.

I'm not blaming the pack, as I did drop it, but there might be use for some padding or protection. Or....I could just avoid my butter fingers
