"Martin, it doesn't matter how the batteries the short starts, The test was to see the effectiveness of the lipo bag from preventing the spread of the fire."

Martin commented on Hai Tran's blog post LiPO Fire Testing
"That is not a good test. Who would put a punchured(damaged) lipo into a bag?  Should be done with the batteries in the 3 states of charge (low,storage and charged) and done with a short circuit. Wacking with a nail is not it."
