ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on how to dispose lithium-polymer (LiPo) batteries. Topics include the need for owners of LiPo battery to take them to local business for recycling, the use of charger to discharge the battery and salt bath as tool for depleting the remaining voltage, and the importance of plastic bag of sand to avoid fire damage from the LiPo packs.
