Lipo Charging Box

Just a quick project that I completed in less than an hour... easy to do if you have access to soft fire brick. I acquired a free metal file box, and had some fire brick laying around from my blacksmithing activities, so I whipped this up:

Eventually I'll put some pass-throughs in the side of the box for the wires... like a copper bolt or something similar. That way I'll not clamp the wires in the lid every time. I might put some Kaowool in the lid too... but that sh!t is carcinogenic so I'd need to seal it first.
