Default Lipo Storage Saftey

Hi Everyone I know this subject has come up Before, But I just wanted to Show How I Store Lipos when not in use, and to try to Take out some of the Fear Of lipos that some people have, I use a Metal Ammo Can with 5/16" Holes drilled towards the bottom on both sides, if the lipos need to vent, thats where the pressure will go, and if there is any flames, normally the flames will go up into the can and not so much out the bottom, I store the Ammo can in the garage on the Concrete floor away from things that can catch fire, I line the can with a Thick plastic bag, to prevent any contact with the metal can, another container that will work well, is a ceramic flower pot with a ceramic Floor tile on top of it, Hope that Helps to take some of the fear out of Lipo storage, Take care and have fun, Chellie
