    I use our old wine cooler! Has been working great since I have started the lipo game. I just use Tupperware with a paper towel wrapped around the lipos and put em' in. Thanks for the post! It's a PDF so fellas you can save it for later! My afterthought: When we go out on the 1:1 I can use the fridge in the cabin part! Guess I could get another Yeti for Lipos! lol

    Also I would think, storing them in a second fridge could also help suppress a fire if one happened ?

    Thanks Shawn! Looking at how much I've spent on lipos in the last couple of years, I'm going to empty my beer fridge this weekend.
    Store my lipos in there from now on and switch to rye for the rest of my days!

    Would it also be advisable to keep the battery in the fire proof charging bag as well while in the fridge for extra safety?

    Myself.... I dont trust the bags. If the gas can get out, so can the fire.

    I think in the fridge should be sealed enough. Probably a smoky mess inside IF it ever happened but I have yet to have a battery do anything it wasn't supposed to.

    How long does it take for the batteries to warm up once you take them out of the fridge? I keep mine in my basement which is usually 60 degrees, thinking about getting a small fridge.

    Best to leave them for 12-24 hours, like any electronics that has been in the chill. It gives time for any condensation to dissipate.

    Scored a mini-fridge at a garage sale last weekend, all my lipos are now "chilling" until I need to charge some up.

    I live in Australia so we are very limited to what we can get., but from some recent research revolectrix seem to perform and review well. If I had my time over again I would have purchased revo packs, instead I went for some slightly cheaper turnigy, which I have had various issues with some packs. Better off spending just a little more and knowing they will be well worth it and you will end up saving money in the long run with no regrets.
