Just don't blow them up in the house lol. great batteries and they give extreme power but a tad fragile
Ps. I've got about 50 of them in the dining room :lol:

:lol: i hope you leave a window open for ventilation and plan to disperse the load fairly quick lol
Saw pictures of trucks carrying them going on fire.

We used to buy in loads of Lithium batteries (like the cells in laptop batteries), only had one from hundreds which caught on fire, "went up like a roman candle" as the boss says, lol.

 

Funniest thing, they were branded TrustFire:lol:

Pmsl! The type in a laptop will be Li-ion? Considerably safer than a lipo but no doubt still a great fire out them lol.

Gotta love lithium or lipo batterys :lol:

At sea, we're not all that worried about stuff that can be packsged (and if needs be lobbed over the side).

Not one of the container ships actually adheres to the rules on where to place dangerous goods in relation to each other. They physically can't do it.

We used to buy in loads of Lithium batteries (like the cells in laptop batteries), only had one from hundreds which caught on fire, "went up like a roman candle" as the boss says, lol.

I've heard a few comments like that about TrustFire...apparently they're often badly salvaged batteries from other equipment
