Hey.

I was just wondering if some lipo sacks are better then others.

Specifically the one from readyheli. It seems to be one of the cheaper ones around. Would that one still be a safe choice?

Thanks for your time

Jesse

The hobbycity.com ones are nice, though I've never "put them to the test". They feel thick and the stitching is well done. That's all I can say really. If I have a LiPo fire I will let you know.

Get the real thing, liposack from woodworks. www.liposack.com. Some of the cheap ones are made from materials that will not hold up to a lipo fire. Some are made from kevlar which will burn at a lower rating than what a lipo fire will produce. Some are also made from fiberglass which has an even lower threashold. The difference you are talking about is a few dollars.

Yeah i totally understand. Don't want to burn the garage and house down just to save like 10 bucks.

Thanks for the input

Hi,

I think the Woodworks LipoSack sets the benchmark. I also think that ReadyHeli's branded Eat.Sleep.3D Lipo Safe Charging and Storage Bag is VERY close to the Woodwork's one, but costs just half or less

Other bags are:
- K&S LiPo Charge Safe
- Losi LiPo Protection Pouch
- Xtreme LiPo Safe
- Lipo Safe
- Racers Edge Li-Pouch
- Fusion-Pack Lipo Charging and Storage Bag
- Venom Lipo Safety Charging Sack
- Dynamite Lipo Charge Protection Bag

Pick your poison

P.S.: I just use the bags to transport and store my lipos. Never charge them in it. I balance charge every time with high-quality chargers and monitor the charging.

Best,
Frank

anyone know where i can buy a sheet of the material (is it kevlar)?

I'd like to line the inside of the case my t-rex came in and use it as a battery transport box...
