Lipo Storage Basics

I don’t know the origins of the above graphic, but I found it in a lengthy discussion of Lipo discussions over on Below are the basics that I took from the discussion.

1) Lipo batteries lose capacity when stored at full charge. Ideal charge is around 40%.

2) Storing at cool temperature will increase the life of a Lipo somewhat.

3) Be sure to let Lipos warm up to room temp. before charging or using them.
