    The battery doesn't need to breathe, but I would worry about leaving it in a hot truck more than in a closed case.

    It's rare but fires do happen from booster packs. I've seen one in a Rav4 that wrote it off.

    If anything it's just not healthy for the pack. So I carry mine only on road trips.

    Mine lives in one of the Noco hard shell cases with a zipper it's whole life. Works okay, never had a problem with it being in the truck in Texas summers for about 3 years now. Not saying it couldnt be a problem as Bishop84 wrote, because it could be, just that I have never had a problem. Keep in mind that for all purposes my truck was my office for the last 30 years and only in the last year and a half or so has it become less so.

    I suspect Pelican style cases would be fine.

    I had a NOCO 40 in each one of our cars and they worked well, but I sold them all and replaced them with super capacitor jumpers

    Unlike battery based jump boxes that will eventually die (and more than likely when you need it the most), the batteryless jumpers quickly charge using residual battery voltage and releases its energy much faster for a more powerful cranking

    Best of all, they virtually last forever and don't require any maintenance
