i wouldn't. in the unfortunate event that one of the cells gets overcharged and explodes, not only will you have a busted pack but quite possibly a blown up kit as well.

depends. its gonna be bad if ur cells short on the chassis but this only happens when cells have cuts and nicks in shrink wrap.
if its hot and ur having probs with charging batterys and getting to hot then u prob need to put em in a cooler or sumthing.
i charge packs in my car and still use the temps sensor so ur pretty safe just be sensible dont charge at 8 amps lol.

Thanks for the reply. My packs dont get too hot when charging. I was afraid the heat will warp the lower deck or something? I know I should stop being lazy tho.
