I'd like to comment on Dave's last note..."Don't store damaged ones with good ones."
I would like to suggest that you take a few words off that. "Don't store damaged ones" might be a better proposition.

I have one of these safes as well and I store all my lipos in it. I know that I lose all the lipos if one goes up. I know that the gases from a fire will escape from the safe and pollute the basement and rest of the house. I am pretty sure that when one goes, they will all go and the resulting fire will likely blow the box apart. And yet I still use it.

After storing the lipos for a while, open the box and take a sniff.

Mark brought up the point that most issues with these batteries are a result of improper charging, or physical damage. I concur and sleep relatively well knowing that, but...
I am re-thinking my storage as I write this. For now, at least I know where all my lipos are.

I'm not as worried about them blowing up in storage if they are not puffed, haven't been in a crash and have been charged properly. There are a heck of a lot of batteries on store shelves and warehouses that are not in safes.

Here's a good reason to at least use a lipo bag when charging to contain the burning goo.

Those are some scary photos Tombsy...but it doesn't say what the cause of the fire was...I would imagine that the charger was probably set incorrectly.
