    Thank you for the replies, I should have realised it was different ecig charges being used on other types of ecig.

    There have been far more problems with cell phones than E-Cigs yet no publicity on those.

    After reading last nite on another thread about a battery fire I decided to order this thru amazon - Lipo Battery Fireproof Bag Storage Bag for extra piece of mind/security.

    I've got one of these too, they arent going to completely prevent damage if there's a problem, but for the cost if they prevent a small fire in your house its a no-brainer.

    Usually I place any batteries that might flame in a tobacco tin lined with a strip of mica to prevent shorting and causing thermal runaway.

    Probably worth mentioning somewhere in the discussion - never chuck water on a lithium fire! Water makes it flare up even worse!

    Didn't realise these could be had so cheap! The only ones I happened to spot before were very expensive for what they are. Can't go wrong for £2.59 on eBay!

    Having seen footage of a laptop literally spouting a jet of flame like a flamethrower, I sort of doubt anything in the form of a "bag" is going to do much.

    Planting the battery in a bucket of sand is probably as safe as you can get.

    I don't think there is Reason to be Overly Worried. But I think there is Enough Reason to take some Simple Precautions.

    Like not Charging Batteries on top of a Pile of Papers or Oily Rags.

    And Not Charging Batteries Unattended or while you are Asleep.

    I remember reading an Amazon review about a Lipo Bag where the Buyer said that he put a Lighter to the Bag and it Caught on Fire. He went on to say that he felt that charging in a Old Pillow Case would be Just As Effective. And $15 Cheaper.

    Just like Many Things, a $5 Lipo Charging Bag on e-Bay Might not be the Best Call. And perhaps it would be Better to Spend a Few Bucks More on One where you can Read Reviews about it.
