Put some hot glue over it and run it. Just a cracked piece of plastic!

The case will visibly bulge or separate. The outgassing of the lipo internals is quite powerful, and the foil cases can handle a fair amount of pressure. I have seen cells puff up to 3 times their normal thickness..

Yeah you can see the plastic bulging a bit. The worst thing I have seen happen to a lipo was a hard case orion 4800 that was accidentally charged on a nimh setting . The cases separated without being damaged and the pack ended up being about 4 inches tall. Was noticed just in time, so no smoke or fire.

Yeah you could use them as an airbag suspension on your truck. It would be a bit too slow to hop with, though.
