Default lipo battery

I would like to use a lipo battery in my new crawler but have heard bad stories about them exploding. I have never used one so any help would be great.

They catch fire when charged improperly or handled improperly. I have used them for about 6 years now without a single mishap.

Where can I get information on the proper way to charge them. I would like to do right so I don't have any problems. Thanks Tiny

You need a lipo charger. Maxamps has a pretty good resource on their site for proper lipo care and charging I believe.
