So...if you look on YouTube, there are quite a few horrifying videos showing Lipo batteries catching fire during charging.  Does everybody feel safe recharging Lipos indoors?  Just curious...

I have a P4 and the charge rate is so slow that hardly any heat builds up in the Lipo packs. Charging Lipos at a high current rate creates a lot of heat which is where the danger lies.

When I charge my four intelligent flight batteries, I place the two 100w Chargers and battery packs on a fan that points to the ceiling. They have Never even gotten warm.

Seen a few drones burn up though. Yeah, right after a hard impact.... ;-)

I'm sure most charged them inside, and I bet those YouTube vids are not DJI batteries.
