    I see a whole bunch on eBay for cheap. I have a feeling many of these are useless against fire like some of the proven ones I have seen on YouTube.

    Can anyone recommend a USA/Canadian source for a reputable bag that will actually protect me against one of these batteries letting go?

    Thanks.

    After seeing and using a number of these bags, I get the feeling they're all sourced from the same manufacturer (or at least all using the same material and designs) and just badged for different vendors.

    If I had to choose one place to get them, I'd probably go with this one, if only for the range of sizes: https://commonsenserc.com/advanced_sear ... ag&x=0&y=0

    I've never had one put to the test, so I can't speak to the true effectiveness of any of them. I've since started using a surplus military ammo can (airtight) for storing/transporting my lipos.

    Dang just my luck. I first selected smaller bag but decided get larger one to guarantee p2 battery fits. I will only be using for charging though...1 at a time.

    Maybe you are in time to cancel your order, for the others.
