The batteries themselves are no more risky, more the way i plan on using them.
Normally when people use these batteries theyre all permanantly attached to eachother to create one cell. My batteries will all be loosely connected through the battery terminals inside the battery bay. Im absolutely certain it will work and hopefully achieve that retro feel too .
Just want to see what people think considering they could potentially fall out, and wont be heat shrink wrapped etc etc.

Would hate miss something obvious with these batteries.

Sorry to do so, but I ne we got an answer to my question regarding the overcharge protection... My LiPos arrived yesterday and I want to put that first safety measure on before going ahead.

Thanks in advance for advice!

Looking into options for overcharge protection available in Germany, would this work?
I'm planning to use a 4000mAh Lipo.

Thanks for your answer!
I have a mechanical background, so working on the case is not the problem.
Finding out about these little details on electronics is making life harder these days...

Does anyone of you know if the JST SM connector would work on the Adafruit Powerboost 1000C ?
I found them in 22AWG, but not the JST PH in 22AWG...

thanks for your help

they say that it's not good to do so even with alkaline..do they mean like 18650, 14500 etc ???

and thanks for sharing, my backup in case im too afraid to do razor's setup (i.e. http://imgur.com/a/C8a5O) was to actually do exactly what they say NOT to do on your link.... so this is out now.

Hi everyone,
I have just purchased a Adafruit 1000c does this have undervoltage overcharge protection built in please?

Would it be safe to use an unprotected 18650 with this board?

Many thanks

From my experience with having used modified electronic cigarettes which utilize replaceable Li-Po batteries under extreme loads, 50+ amp pulses would be a normal occurrence and I would like to know what the chemical composition is first. Are your batteries ICR, IMR, INR, or one of the even newer types? There are major differences in terms of outputs and also in terms of safety.

Here's a great Reddit post: Everything you need to know about batteries but were afraid to ask.

Regarding Lithium Ion batteries on airplanes, the last time I had to fly the rules were that batteries had to be in a hard, protective case or installed in the device. I'm also pretty sure that you are not allowed to pack them in checked baggage, carry-on only.
