I would like to get a LIPO bag for charging/storing my batteries.

I don't actually have LIPO's but hopefully the bags don't discriminate.

Can anyone recommend some please?

I've been using LiPo batteries for a few years now and have never bothered with a LiPo bag. In all the races I've been in, I think I've seen maybe TWO people using LiPo bags (however, there are buckets of sand and fire extinguishers nearby).

Initially I was pretty alarmed by the horror stories of LiPo combustion but I've learned that if you just practice common sense and care when charging and discharging the batteries... there's not a whole lot to fear. This is not to say that LiPos NEVER combust, just that it seems to be a far rarer event than Google might have you believe.

I typically just leave the batteries in my cars for charging and storing. Pretty convenient, and they're protected from bumping into other things.

I don't use bags either. I would have bought some, but I've got a large ammo box that fits all my batteries.

I store my lipo batteries in an old metal ammo box when not in use and use a large lipo bag anytime I charge them.

Ammo box sounds cool, not so easy to come by in the UK, I do have an old biscuit tin so that will do for now.

What brand of LIPO bags do you use Woodie?

If needed I do have a couple of ammo boxes.
But when I was/still am, researching Lipo's, I was looking into a bag to store them in.

This is what I was looking at, $12.99 on Amazon. I would take Fireproof and explosion proof with a grain of salt.
You can melt anything if you set your mind to it. LOL
