Yeah I know, scary stuff. The problem with lipos is that 99% of the time there is no problem at all.

Yep. You've never had a LiPo fire... Until you do.

storing lipo's in an airtight ammo box should be fine. You need oxygen to burn and limiting the amount of oxygen available is a good thing. Charging in an ammo box is another story

Not too sure if you want the ammo box sealed.

Some one at my flying field suggested this and I like the idea..
1. Take a cinder block that you can buy at home depot, the one with the two holes in it.
2. Place it on a concrete floor.
3. Turn it on its side where the two holes are facing up (just as you would use it to build a wall) and carve or drill an small opening in the side just enough to get the wires from your charge thru.
4.Now fill a Paper sac with sand just as if you were building a sand bag but only paper...
5. Place your wires thru the drilled or carved out hole and place the batteries inside the cinder block hole and connect your charger and batteries.
6. Start charging
7. place paper sack over the top of hole of the cinder block where your batteries are charging.
8. If the lipos do start a fire the first thing to burn will be the paper sack. It will burn a hole in it and the sand will pour down on to the lipos and extinguish the fire.

Problem sovled before it starts.

Just a thought.

FWIW...
Instead of a paper sack, try a zip lock bag.

As for "sealed" ammo box...they WILL bust open. Weakest link is the wire holding the latch. Best to drill some holes for venting.

Limiting oxygen? search Class D fire.

I do all of my charging on the concrete patio outside, away from any flammables. And I store them in my hobby shed outside, also away from everything.
