Dumb idea?

I'd shy away from the idea, Toy.
It's one of those things that you could probably get away with for a long time and be perfectly safe only takes one thing to go wrong and you could get hurt or at the least start a fire where you'd least want it. Think of it this way: The box is sealed, or at least with little to no ventilation, and a wire connection comes loose from a battery, causes a spark... See what I mean?
