The Bat-Safe LiPo Charging Case is a simple and effective solution for charging and storing LiPo batteries. If you have an R/C model, chances are you own at least one lithium battery. Lithium batteries are an integral component to surface and air models. In rare instances, lithium batteries can become hazardous and catch fire - destroying your personal items, your home and maybe even the life of you or a loved one.
Thats why Bat-Safe was developed. Bat-Safe is an insulated and vented, steel, double wall steel box that contains the fire and intense heat in the event of a battery fire. The smoke and soot is filtered through a built in flame smothering filtration system to protect the area from odor and a majority of the smoke damage that can occur from a battery fire. Plus, Bat-Safe is light weight, easy to use and most importantly, inexpensive! The Bat-Safe is cheap insurance for anyone who uses lithium batteries of any size.
Other features include the ability to charge and store up to four 6S 5000mAh (444Wh) LiPo batteries safely, a charger stand to help keep your charging station organized and tidy, a handle for easy transportation, a fire proof lid seal, a wire through port that provides an access point for charging wires. All of these features combined make Bat-Safe the most advanced battery charging accessory that creates a safer charging environment than anything else currently available.

My box also came with 3 rivets popped out of one of the hinges so it wouldn't open or close without force and a loud pop of metal flex. This is basically because the box is assembled using pop rivets instead of screws or another durable fastener.
All in all I'm a bit disappointed with this item. I might try to repair mine, but I don't think it'll be easy and I think that's by design.
Also, this thing is huge! outside it measures 18x12x9 (46x31x23cm) and I have no idea how to mount the charge stand and it will likely scratch your charger since the foam is loose.
Overall its decent box but the price is a bit too much, unless you have a coupon or store credit.
Consequently, I looked for a high quality storage system to keep my Lipo’s.
Bat-Safe has 2 units:
1) stores packs totaling 10,000 mah
2) this unit to store up to 20,000 mah
I have not had this unit personally tested by a battery failure, but from what I have viewed online, this unit appears to be one of the safest options for modelers.
To date I have purchased two of these units, and one of the smaller original Bat-Safe units.
