The LipoSack just may have saved my house. I had just gotten a new battery charger and was actually using it to put my batteries into storage mode. I had already done a few when I set to do my last two batteries.( I have had and used a LipoSack for several years, since I first started using lipos). About 30 minutes later the smoke detector in my shop went off and I found that the batteries were burning. Read More...

Another success for LipoSack! Although this was NOT a charging mishap, nevertheless, I am very pleased that I had my batteries in a LipoSack at the time. I had 3 LiPos in 'storage' in a Sack, but on a bench. I think that I was foolish not to have kept a plastic guard on the +ve lead of at least one of them. Anyway, I sat down on the edge of the sack and obviously moved the batteries inside, and Read More...

I am very thankful that I had the LipoSack as I am sure that our house would have been severely damaged without it.  I heard the battery venting and I grabbed it and ran it outside to a cement area and the explosion was unbelievable!  I was charging a one month old 2S 4800mah and all of the settings were correct.  From what I can tell, the balancer malfunctioned and the charger just kept charging. Anyway, I am very Read More...

Last night while charging my big 20C 4S1P 4500mA, I thought I'd better use the sack as cell voltage was a touch below 3.2v/ea. So I started a long .5 amp trickle charge. Checked on it twice before going to bed. Woke up to this... Garage a huge mess of ash. LipoSack probably saved my house from burning down as you can see the wall got a bit torched even with the sack. Thank you LipoSack! Read More...

I had a battery catch fire last night. The LipoSack saved my garage from everything but the smoke smell. Yes, that is the front end of an all-original 1956 Thunderbird.   Read More...

I was charging a relatively new, balanced, NanoTech 4s 3.3 pack at 1.5C in my driveway a couple of weeks ago when it caught fire. The LipoSack completely contained the fire so that nothing was damaged or destroyed except for my LipoSack (see photo). Even the charger survived. Read More...

I was preparing to get my Twinkle back in the air and thought I'd charge up a pack or two for it.. Well.. I broke all the cardinal rules of lipo charging, especially when concerning the Astro 109.To make a long story short... Tuesday. I threw a 2S pack onto the charger with a voltage of around 8.0v.. Almost charged.. Well, the 109 said. "Ok. 2S." and started charging. Well, I didn't wait to confirm "2C2". So the 109 went Read More...

"On October 14, 2007 I was recharging a Neu 2s1p 4900 milliamp. The bag performed superbly and I have recommended this sack to all the members of our club using  lithium polymer batteries.  On this day the batteries caught fire and the bag performed as promised with no outward damage."  "This is a great product and I would hope that all people using lipo type cells will use this product. Feel free to use our clubs endorsement and mine (Puget Read More...

When I returned from the field one day I decided to leave all my gear in the back of my pickup under the canopy because I was going to go flying the next morning.  I parked the pickup in the garage. The next morning I went out and found that my lipo battery had ignited and burned and even burned the tool case that it was sitting on.  If it hadn't been for LipoSack I probably would have lost my Read More...
