    Yes, glad you're ok and thanks for the reminder. They look so innocuous it's easy for me to forget sometimes just how much energy is stored in these batteries. I have a healthy respect for them and glad you weren't seriously injured!

    I don't trust any of them. I unplug my chargers when I'm not using them. I don't trust them, either.

    Glad you are okay and nothing got burned to the ground.

    Would keeping a carto and using five click on twist protect you from this?

    Ouch! Glad there was relatively little damage and that you're sharing this with the rest of the community.

    I managed to short a AAA rechargeable NiMH with my keys in my pocket once, and the really hot battery against my thigh was enough to make me super-duper careful with every future battery transportation.
