Not if you use correct procedures. I'll admit the older 900 series may not have as many safety features built in but I have a wide range of packs and the smaller DC/portables. (newer models are much better)

Cables will arc if you dont follow the correct sequence or try to adjust power settings at the wrong times

I have heard they referred to as "the widow maker"
