    Question Upgrading to lipo

    Can someone guide me to a good source for lipo battery safety/care specifically for RC batteries? I'm looking to upgrade to lipo but have read conflicting info on the do's and don'ts of lipo battery charging, storage, care, uses, discharge rates, etc. I've been watching videos of peoples cars melting from exploding lipos therefore I would like to gather as much reliable information before I get into using them. I would like to be able to take care of my lipo's and get the most out of them.

    Thanks

    The really are not that hard to take care of. Just follow the instructions and you should be ok. Its not like you are riding with glass in your truck ready to break at any moments notice

    Yeah, since this post I've learned everything I need to know about lipos. They're not a huge hazard as I previously thought.
