    If somebody bought these on DX and they exploded, then im sure there would be a thread about it!
    Did you see this thread ~ Forum.21474~threadid.650571

    There are always scare storys about batterys exploding, but there is usually a reason that they did, mistreating/overcharging them etc...

    What are you using these for?

    If you want to be on the secure side, always put lithium batteries into a fire-save container when charging them, e.g. a clay flower pot or else. And do not put them in a charger when you are not around.

    I never experienced any problems with lithium batteries (not even with the ones for my R/C models), but - being careful will not hurt.

    DX - always good for a surprise. ;-)

    Basically, except for a very few questionable exceptions, the whole explosion-fire thing in consumer electronics is due to faulty charging. The only reliable way to get a Li* rechargeable to explode is to over-charge it at high current, which doesn't happen unless both the charger and the protection circuit is broken.

    You can get some types of LiPo to explode by physically damaging them though.

    mine came dead on arrival

    I think most of the people say do not charge them overnight.
    When charging them removed them as soon as the green light comes on.

    Test voltages before charging and after to verify state

    As well charge the batteries in a safe location where a explosion or fire isn't going to turn your house down.

    All great tips as I had no idea these could be so dangerous
