Default Liposack vs Battery Bunker

am looking for a good safety container for my lipo packs. Looking right now at either a Liposack or the Battery Bunker.

Of the two, which do you like better and why?

Also, for the battery bunker, will the smaller version hold maxamps 7.4V 2S2P 6000mah or 8000mah packs fine (the car packs) or do I need the bigger holder?

Questions and Answers and F.Y.I.s Question: What size and capacity are safe to charge in the Battery Bunker?
Answer: Suggested maximum capacity 2,100 mAh 11.1volt LiPo battery for the 5" size Battery Bunker and 4000 mAh 11.1volt LiPo battery for the 7" size.

Im not sure what the liposack is capable of but it looks less fragile and more portable but terribly overpriced (of course if you ever really need it then it is really underpriced).

I think the thing that is making me lean more towards the liposack is that if it gets damaged, you get a free replacement. Not sure if thats the cases with the battery bunker.

I know a lot of plane guys and some car guys just take a mason jar and cut several small holes in the lid. Even if a poor quality lipo burst it does not explode it will torch wich the mason Jar will more then handle. Plus the Mason jar can be found at your grocery store for less then a dollar.

The lipo sack would probably be good for NiMH as they have been actually exploding on some people.

Thanks for the info. No lipos this year unfortunately, but maybe next year with the LiMN technology.
