I lost 7 lipos while out of teh country for work - was supposed top be gone 4-6wks and it wound up being 11wks - they all puffed. I did the salt water business after harvesting all the conns and they turned the water a light blue color.

I def wouldn't be cutting a hole in the pac though - only prob I've ever had with a lipo - bashing around on a dirt/trash pile and a stick speared the lipo in my truck. It started smoking and I was able to get to it and get it out before it really went - no fire, but lots of white smoke and heat. I'm guessing the hole let oxygen in and it caused the electrolyte to oxidize - rather voilently from my perspective. Neighbors even came out to see what all the smoke was about.

I like to hook them up to my car battery with jumper cables. But be ready to yank the cables away or they will get nasty burn marks!
