Chat about the safety you’re building into your eFoil


Happy day and ESC/remote issue

Two things on an eFoil are extremely dangerous:

  1. Propeller
  2. Lipo batteries - this post is about your battery bombs…

I cannot stress enough the importance of having a safe electrical system. From wire sizing, to batteries. It’s important not only for you, but your family and friends as these explode and burn homes down.

If you watch this video on lipo batteries you will quickly learn how dangerous they are. In fact, if you are using a plastic battery box and for some reason your battery shorts and explodes your box could explode and send plastic shrapnel everywhere, and with most battery boxes between our legs you can see the concern :smile:

I have asked a few times what people recommend for their battery box for safety, no one has replied yet, but from my research, just watch this video and you quickly agree that your batteries must be in a strong aluminum box, or at minimum inside a lipo safe battery bag within your plastic box.

I’ll post this in a few threads so more ppl can learn about this.
