He might have shorted it out when fully charged. Just look at the pit table. There's things laying everywhere that could be organized. I've had a 3300 cell short out on my Xray chassis. It melted the carbon and the cell was glowing red. Smoke was flowing out and the cell started to swell up. It didn't explode, but it would have if I had not pulled it out quickly.

Watched a guy blow up a GP at christmas time. His LRP charger was acting weird. The cells started to vent so he ran them outside set them on the ground...

Then some smart guy said pouring water on them would be ok....

One cell exploded while the owner was standing over them, I was easily 10ft away and felt debris hit my face. The owner was a little shook up.

i have actually had flames come from a cell that shorted out in my xray....was kinda scary

but the guy that noticed (my car was on the start line) was reeealy calm..he just said 'whos car is this' so i said mine and he said 'well.....your car is on fire mate..'

i just thought to my self...its only on fire..no need to panic (sarcasticly of course) damn it

I had a Sanyo 3000Mah cell fizzing and popping because I overcharged it on the weekend, and I shorted a 3300GP pack once and I watched the cell expanding and s**t myself because it was right next to me on my pit table, lucky it didnt blow

Easy to pop a cell with the cell master...

Use the step charging method on a fully charged pack...
The first 2 steps do NOT detect peak....

i made the mistake of putting a partially charged pack on stepcharge on my advantage.

it got VERY hot but the cell popped and vented (luckily that wasn't my better packs....except stepcharge did fry another fully discharged pack )

The Orion Advantage charger does shut off for temp even during step charging. I know this as I step charged a 4 cell last night and it shut down during the first step for temp. Does the Much More charger not do this. The temp setting should be set for safety and should always stop the charge.
