So I’m still in the process of putting together my first eboard and through reading I have been doing I am becoming more and more concerned about LiPo safety. I live in a city apartment and as such do not have access to anywhere outdoors, or a cement floor, to store/charge my board. I am using two 6s batteries wired in series for a 12s configuration. I wanted to have an easy 1 port charging solution so I incorperated a 12s BMS in my design allowing me to just use a DC barrel plug bulk charger for charging. That being said the setup is such that I do not want to be taking apart my battery enclosure every time I want to charge my board.
I have been trying to think of a safe way to store/charge my board in my apartment so as not too come home and have the whole building burned down (yes I know not to leave a charging battery untended, was referring more to storage in that case).
I was wondering if I built a thick-ish (1/2")plywood box lined with some aluminum sheet metal that was big enough to store my entire board in, if that would be adequate protection against a 12s LiPo fire? Also do not have a ton of room or $ so didn’t want anything as overkill as say a gun safe or anything.
