I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a cost effective Battery bunker. I found out custom built bunkers from a pottery shop can get expensive. Then it hit me: Why not use a clay flower pot? They can certainly handle the heat. There is one series that has 3 vertical slots in the side around the bottom. These can be used for wire passage. I even have a use for the bottom tray, put it on top of the pot while the battery is charging. If there is a fire it will not be a full flame front with the top on. This is what mine look like:

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!

Great find, especially since they already have the slot for the wire!

Some guys will go one better and cover the pack with a ziplock bag full of sand. If the pack were to light off, it will immediately burn through the plastic, covering the battery in sand. Doing it this way avoids the mess of loose sand except when you really need it.

LOW COST, ALL MECHANICAL, FULLY AUTOMATIC LiPo FIRE EXTINGUISHER
Dr.Ben,

That is a GREAT idea. Low cost, all mechanical, AUTOMATIC fire extinguisher with no mess. No open flames with a lot of black soot to clean up in the house or garage!! I think I can find some sand here in Florida all I need are the bags.

Thanks for sharing.
