The usual reason lipom batteries start burning is when the pouch loses it seal either by a puncture or if due to puffing the sealed pouch lets air in ; the oxygen will cause the lithium to burn...

Yeah, I don't take chances with them either. I keep mine in the garage in a steel case. No way they're entering my house to sleep, or I won't.

Re: OK Fly a little puffed battery

A while back I purchased two identical batteries here on RCC. They were sold as new, never used. I believe they were as they looked new. I have used them several times now very gently, one is fine but the other one is gradually puffing up just a wee bit more with each use. It performs the same, gets the same charge rate and is flown in the same plane.

Anyone experienced this before?

Re: OK Fly a little puffed battery

I have seen this with identical batteries, used identically. Still have a couple pairs like that. Both still appear to work the same. Have not checked for IR differences. I would never notice any difference under load as I don't have any applications where I push a battery anywhere near it's stated C rating.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.
