If you have a coal fire just check them in there. Get some chestnuts & roast them on the inferno
I shot my last damaged lipo with my air rifle. It was about 1/2 charged at the time. Have to admit, was rather surprised / disappointed with the abuse that it took. LIPO got very hot, but no flames or any spectacular explosion.
Next time, will be the large nail and hammer technique!

Usually unsolder mine and make up new packs with the good cells from dead packs (yes I am very tight). Chucked a couple of cells in a fire, can't tell you how disappointing it was.
I certainly think it's worth removing the wires from a dead lipo.
You never know when a few inches of heavy duty cable is going to come in handy; adaptors etc.
