At NRCC we take LiPo battery safety very seriously. We insist that everyone follows these rules.
- Only hard-case LiPos are to be used in cars
- LiPos must always be charged in a commercially available LiPo sack.
- There is a maximum charging and discharging rate of 15A
- LiPo should never be used once they have started to swell.
The club has red fire buckets filled with sand. These are to be used in case of LiPo fires or if you suspect a LiPo might catch fire. LiPos smoking or on fire should be taken outside the building as soon as possible.
