Luckily I was up early this morning walking down my hallway when one of my Mavic Pro batteries exploded.  Smoke started shooting out like a rocket and then it caught fire.  I grabbed it burning my hand and threw it out a door.  The battery was glowing like lava and then it exploded.  I have burnt fingers and my hallway countertop is burned down into the wood.  What the actual hell?  If I wouldn't have been up my house would have burned down.

Hi Todd - glad you are (relatively) OK and very sorry to hear about the close call. I have been storing my batteries in a rather stout, sealed metal container, placed on the concrete floor in my basement, away from anything remotely flammable. But this makes me consider also getting one of the purpose-made fireproof LiPo battery bags I've seen discussed on the forum. Good luck to you.
