PostSubject: Lithium batteries just dont seem safe   Sat Feb 23, 2013 9:50 pm

as some of you know i have a bright ass flashlight on my rifle. the other day it stopped working so i checked the batteries and they were melted inside my flashlight. 6 months prior to that i had a lipo battery explode on me.....

is it just me or is lithium not that safe of a power source?

the only reason i use lipo is because thats the only battery that fits in my front RIS, i have it that way so i dont have to rear wire my gearbox... i dont like those bulky stocks..

Given the dangers of Over recharging or overdraining them, there are now more current technologies that have built in shut offs to take the danger out of Lipo batteries.

I fly a remote controll Helicopter and actually stock pile a lot of batteries just so I could fly Hour long sessions or more.

You should never recharge a Battery when its hot.

Do not leave them too long on a charger... even if they are automatic chargers.

Lipo batteries have a lifespan and even built inside a foam RC airplane, those batteries need to be changed...I fly a 2007 RC Dragonfly Orthocopter and by now, my entire fleet is grounded until I could custom install new 3 .1 volt Lipo batteries.

Given my say is not for Airsoft, the Issue of batteries are deeply related to all the things we wanna power.
