I put a 3s Flight Power 1600 14c in my TREX after using it in my zoom. The heli wasn't set up properly in terms of motor/pinion and the battery got really hot it then ballooned

Is it now useless and unsafe?

Thanks

Rich

Yes it is ruined! Don't even try using it, because the next stage is a flamin' battery!

your kidding right? i wouldnt throw it in any box unless its an empty ammo box.

Actually the order is submerse it in salt water, then puncture it (while still under water). You keep the oxygen out that way, so no chance of burnt fingers!

Here in Oregon they wont let us have real fireworks -maybe a lipo is the next best thing!

DO NOT PUNCTURE IT UNLESS UNDER WATER!!!!!!!!

The cell don't actually explode, but they do react with oxygen to start to burn.

and once LiPo starts to burn, you won't be able to put it out easily, since its a "metal" fire.

What's the reason for the salt in the water, what happens if you puncture a LiPo in a bucket of clean water?

The salt water neutralizes the battery. If hole was made and it was not in salt water it will still catch on fire when pulled out of water.

Aw....spoil sports........do what I did.........charge your lipo fully, then notice the battery has swollen. Be really mad you've ruined a good battery. Almost read the instructions about disposing of it safely.........blah blah blah pierce battery blah blah .........then run screaming like a little girl when the battery starts hissing (after piercing it with a stanley knife) and then a 8 foot flame shoots out at you....

It is Guy Fawkes night after all .......I only pierced one cell....think of the fun doing all 3!!!!!!!

What about you "shoot" the pack with a rifle into a pool of water, then you get all packs pierced and immersed in water.
