A family member wasnt going to be around for a while so had some packages sent to my address,one being a lipo battery
as soon as i picked the packet up off the doormat i realised it was warm and on opening it the cell is very hot,I've chucked it outside as I know theyre quite dangerous things for catching fire etc etc,what do i do now?
how can I safely dispose of it?

ive got an old metal sweetie tin,I'll bung that over the top of it,it was intended for an r/c plane
If i take it to the local dump/recycling centre will they dispose of it properly?

Bloody hell, I wouldnt be putting that in a car to take it anywhere! A sweeit tin wont be that strong if it goes pop, put a brick on the lid or put it as far from anything else as you can ie. bottom of garden but away from fences or hedges:thumbsup:

This is what a lipo battery can do if damaged http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7999636960714830130&hl=en

Now tell me you'd still want hubby to take that in his car to the model shop!!:w00t::w00t::w00t:
