Take care recharging your radios.

I spotted this on a FB radio page..

Just a Warning for other operators. This happened to me tonight. Radio was new as of November. Placed the radio on the charger this evening because the battery was getting low within fifteen minutes I had to run back to the shack to get a cable for another radio I was doing a firmware update on and I come to find this radio in a shack filled with smoke and the battery on fire!!! #tyt md380

Thats cooked! I never go far from a charger and always charge on wood or a worktop. Smoke alarms are always a good idea for a shack.
