not much you can do with those. Just don't charge them while you're out shopping.

charging on your workbench is not a good idea, use something like a bucket of sand, or on a concrete floor away from everything....you get the idea.

Thanks again, astro. I normally charge LiPos in an ammo box or a metal pail, and stay in the room most of the time as a precaution.

IMHO your Triton will not overcharge an unbalanced battery, no danger as long as the battery is not damaged or shorted. The fact is that the Triton will not even come close to a complete charge on an unbalanced battery as it's logic seems to detect when a pack is at a safe capacity. I have a couple 3s packs with no balancing tap that the Triton will only take to 12.35 - 12.45 volts but the "dumber" Astro 109 will charge to 12.67-12.72 volts-danger zone.
The bottom line is if you had a six ounce tank in a glow plane would you put 4 ounces in it to go flying? Six ounces would be more fun and on top of that, the last quarter volt you get into a pack is "high octane" fuel - the best part of the charge. You're cheating yourself if you don't balance your packs.
Good Day, WMK.
