That seems to be working well for KiM, and I don't see it adding much risk of it going off, but treat it like it could when you charge.
Indeed it has...Dogman i wish my puffed cells were only that puffed mine look like bloated
roadkill...haha As Luke mentioned too my de-puffed and resealed lipos packs are going fine
all balance within 0.01v of each other hot off the charger i been pulling as much as 280amp from them too
so they ain't being babied...
...I forget how many cells i have 'de-puffed' now...two and a a half 6s packs worth or there abouts though.
Make sure if you try this though you use a non metallic object to pierce the cell, apply minimal pressure AFTER the
cell is lanced, you don't want so much pressure that liquid comes out of the pack IMO.
... i cut a slice a few mm long right on the seem, released the gass then applied a
smear of hot glue and folded the seam back down over the slice/glue and re taped the pack
with 4 wraps of Kevlar tape.
EDIT: I of course mention all this with word of caution, if your house burns down due to lipo fire don't come running to
I been charging mine inside on wood table or in my bikes fiberglass battery housing
from day one and haven't changed this routine...
