LiPo Locker

Sep 04, 2011 No Comments by

If you are like me and fly a lot, you also charge your batteries often.  Safety is a priority, but no matter what, I get distracted.  I work in my attached garage so if anything happened while charging a LiPo, I would be in big trouble.  The LiPo Locker is a wonderful addition to my charging station and covers my tail in many ways.  I use a multi-cable from RC Accessory so I have all my female plugs inside the locker along with a balance lead.  I simply make the connection and drop the battery into the locker.  The top of the locker is filled with sand and is held back with a layer of plastic wrap.  Should a fire ignite, the plastic burns through and the sand drops to smother the fire.  Great idea!
