Lots of folks prefer Ammo cans for charging/storage. You can find discussions on the Forum about that, if you want to consider it.

There are some LiPo bag comparison videos on YouTube. This one is a "Part 2". In the part one, they discussed a lot of design specifics to look for (and some others to avoid).

I would recommand ammo cans as well. The LiPo Bags in many cases are not a real protection but something to feel good. They are usually rated for very small batteries only. Even the larger ones are not even suitable for a single Typhoon H battery. If you want to be 100% safe, you should buy a "bat-safe".

This product for example is just fine: Bat-Safe LiPo Battery Charging Safe Box
I am not a huge hobbyking fand but since they are available all over the world, it is the best I can offer to you.

Since those dedicated bat-safes are very expensive, many people buy ammo cans. They are fireproof, leightweight and ment to withstand small explosions. Since they are usually water tight, it is important to drill a hole in them so gases can escape and no pressure is build up inside. I just found that some people are even spray painting and selling them for three times the usual price. A 200 round 7.62 can will fit three batteries just fine.

Hey Paw
Do you also charge the batteries in your ammo box ?

Or just carry or store them in there ?
I would not recommand to charge them inside a container of any kind. They will generate more heat which increses the risk of a malfunction. The best solution is simply charging them on a incombustible surface like stone or ceramic. Both are also non-conductive which is a good thing when handling batteries. The very best would be a baking dish since the battery cant "escape" even if it catches on fire and creates a lot of gases which might propell it away from a simple ceramic tile.

Hi, just store and carry.

Have tried once or twice to charge batteries in the box but didn't feel good with this idea.
@jannislh expressed clearly what bothered me.
I charge my batteries sitting them on a piece of plasterboard and let them breath. Should put them inside a spacious ceramic or sth. block maybe...
