This happened to a buddy of mine today after a crash. Just a reminder to everyone to be careful with these batteries.

Someone should craft a logical set of "4 rules of lipo safety", as we do with firearms.

These things are dangerous, and yet we're all guilty of slacking at some point or another.

+1

Common sense can go along way towards this end though...just as with firearms!

Aren't most cellphones powered by lipos?

Close, Li-Ion.
Although, infinitesimal in size...still, the potential would be there.

Doin't think we'll convince people to quit putting their cell phones in their pockets though.

I was once nominated for a Darwin award by the users of runryder. I deserved it.
This deserves a nomination.

We've seen a couple of instances when they go off many hours after the crash.

I bring them home on the front seat of the car with the window open... ready to toss... then do proper discharge/disposal outdoors when I get home...

oops, bounced it!

Phone batteries are so small they couldn't hurt you

Watch at YouTube

I literally never use the word literally right.

Come to think of it if held them to my lips to check for heat ?? Thinking now it's probally not a very good idea just after a crash lucky for you it was the back pocket or you would be showing us pics of a Winnie roast n that would have polluted my vision for years to come so thanks for using ur back pocket

Hey Jeep,

Correct me if I am wrong, but any undies I have worn have the fly on the front, as pictured in the first post. I'd like to hear about your garments of choice with a button fly on the backside.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Hunting pants are a whole other story. Cargo unloading door in the rear is understandable in that situation. Same goes for my union suit.

Having niCads short out in a pocket years ago was enough to keep me from ever putting lipos in my pocket.

another note
Also keep in mind that looks can be deceiving. The battery did not look like it had any damage and thats why he put it in his pocket. It didnt blow right away!!! So always, always give your batteries some time to settle just to make sure they are GTG..

Another thing that I am bad about and am trying to get better at is walking away from the charger while my lipos are charging.. That's never a good idea but I get side tracked easily..

Im working on it!!

Anyway, I know everybody knows that Lipos are dangerous, I just posted this just as a friendly reminder.. Some people get complacent...Me included...

Is that a lipo in your pocket or are you happy to see me?

It's a wise precaution to leave crashed lipos somewhere safe till you're certain they won't blow.

And needless to say but his money was burning a hole in his pocket that day with a crash and a burnt lipo
