  • Title: About Lipo's - Radio Controlled Shop
    Descriptive info: Understanding RC LiPo Batteries.. What are LiPo batteries and why are they so popular in the RC world?.. LiPo batteries (short for Lithium Polymer) are a type of rechargeable battery that has taken the electric RC world by storm, especially for planes and helicopters.. They are the main reason electric flight is now a very viable option over fuel powered models.. RC LiPo batteries have three main things going for them that make them the perfect battery choice for RC planes and even more so for RC helicopters over conventional rechargeable battery types such as NiCad, or NiMH.. RC LiPo batteries are light weight and can be made in almost any shape and size.. RC LiPo batteries have large capacities, meaning they hold lots of power in a small package.. RC LiPo batteries have high discharge rates to power the most demanding electric motors.. In short, LiPo’s provide high energy storage to weight ratios in an endless variety of shapes and sizes.. These benefits are important in any RC model, but for airplanes and helicopters they are the reason electric flight has become so popular.. Face it, electric cars and boats have been around for decades, it wasn’t till LiPo battery technology arrived on the scene, that electric planes and helicopters started showing up and are now surpassing nitro power in terms of performance.. There are a few down sides with RC LiPo batteries however; once again proving there is no perfect solution.. RC LiPo batteries are still expensive compared to NiCad and NiMH, but coming down in price all the time.. Although getting better, RC LiPo’s don’t last that long, perhaps only 300-400 charge cycles (much less if not cared for properly).. That said, I have heard some people getting over 1000 cycles if all the rules are followed.. Safety issues - because of the volatile electrolyte used in LiPo’s, they can catch fire or explode.. RC LiPo batteries require unique and proper care if they are going to last for any length of time more so than any other battery technology.. Charging, discharging, and storage all affect the lifespan – get it wrong and a LiPo is garbage in as little as one mistake.. Before I start talking about the actual care ratings of RC LiPo batteries, I thought I should go over the basics first.. Feel free to skip down the page if you don’t care about the actual make up of a lithium battery and just “want to know what the heli to do with them and what to look for when buying them”.. Differences in Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries.. In the RC world today, most battery packs are of the LiPo type.. I thought I should include a short discussion on the Li-Ion type of pack just in case you come across one as they are used in some higher end radios.. Li-Ion and LiPo batteries have essentially the same chemical make-up and are cared for in the same way; the differences are in how the cells are packaged and the type of electrolyte that is used.. Li-Ion.. Li-Ion batteries use an organic liquid solvent as the electrolyte.. This electrolyte is responsible for the ion exchange between the electrodes (anode and cathode) just like any type of battery.. This organic solvent based electrolyte is highly flammable and the reason why Li-Ion batteries are more volatile and can catch fire or explode if mistreated.. Li-Ion batteries are usually encased in a hard metal can (again like a more conventional battery) adding weight and not allowing many different options as far as shape and size.. LiPo.. A true LiPo battery doesn’t use a liquid electrolyte but instead uses a dry electrolyte polymer that resembles a thin plastic film.. This film is sandwiched (actually laminated) between the anode and cathode of the battery allowing for ion exchange – thus the name lithium polymer.. This method allows for a very thin and wide range of shapes and sizes of cells.. The problem with true LiPo cell construction is the ion exchange through the dry electrolyte polymer is slow and thus greatly reduces the discharge and charging rates.. This problem can be somewhat overcome by heating up the battery to allow for a faster ion exchange through the polymer between anode and cathode, but is not practical for most applications.. If they could crack this problem, the safety risk of lithium batteries would be greatly reduced.. With the big push towards electric cars and energy storage, there is no doubt some pretty huge developments will be made in ultra light weight dry and safe LiPo’s in the coming years.. Seeing that theoretically this type of battery could be made flexible, almost like a fabric, just think of the possibilities.. LiPo Hybrids.. All RC LiPo batteries out there at the time of this write up (May/09) are actually a hybrid lithium polymer battery.. The correct name for this type of battery is lithium-ion polymer, but the battery world of today simply calls them lithium polymer even though they are not a true dry type LiPo battery.. By introducing a gelled electrolyte into the polymer, the ion exchange rate is improved immensely.. Since the electrolyte is gelled, there is less chance of leakage, but it is still flammable.. LiPo hybrids are not as dangerous as Li-Ion’s but they can still catch fire or explode if over charged, shorted, or punctured.. When first introduced, LiPo batteries were more expensive than Li-Ion because they are more difficult to manufacture.. Fortunately prices have dropped substantially since they have become as, if not more popular than Li-Ion battery technology.. This holds especially true for electric powered RC aircraft and the real driver behind LiPo battery research – portable communication/entertainment devices.. LiPo hybrids use the same flat cell structure as their dry counter parts meaning they have the same flexibility with sizes and shapes allowing for very specialized shaped battery packs perfect for use in our RC models.. Almost every RC LiPo battery cell is packaged in a foil pouch coincidentally called a pouch cell.. The picture to the right shows a typical 2 cell LiPo RC battery pack.. Pouch cells are the perfect solution for building multi celled battery packs since the flat pouch cell can be stacked with no wasted air spaces like found within round celled battery packs.. Of course since LiPo’s use this light weight pouch instead of a metal can, less weight is the result making LiPo’s the best choice over Li-Ion in a weight conscious application such as RC aircraft.. If you ever open up a LiPo foil pouch cell, this is what you will find.. A long piece of very thin plastic film (the polymer) with thin carbon coated anode and cathodes in an alternating pattern on the front and back side of the polymer film.. This long film (over 7 feet long in the case of this 5000 mAh cell), is then folded accordion style back and forth upon itself.. The entire folded cell matrix is then sealed into the foil pouch along with the "greasy" gel/liquid electrolyte which incidentally has a very sweet solvent smell much like nail polish remover/acetone - no wonder it's flammable.. If you're wondering what the burnt hole is in the center of all the cell folds, I purposely drove a nail through this cell to discharge it rapidly watch the fireworks.. The cell rapidly ballooned out, burst, and vented a great deal of flammable electrolyte but never caught on fire.. On the positive side, if it would have burst into flame, I wouldn't have this picture to show you the "guts".. I only did this because I dropped this heavy 6S 5000mAh LiPo pack on the hard concrete floor (yes - very dumb costly butter finger moment) and one cell was damaged in the process.. Lesson learned, don't carry more LiPo's than you can safely hold!.. One interesting characteristic hybrid LiPo batteries share to an extent with their dry counterparts is they do get more efficient at ion exchange once warmed up.. If you have ever noticed your RC model seem to gain a little more power a minute or so after working the battery; what you are experiencing is the increase in ion exchange efficiency once the battery chemistry warms up.. This should have you thinking that if you fly your electric RC helicopter or plane in the winter time, you might want to keep your RC LiPo battery packs in a warm place prior to the flight.. LiPo RC Battery Ratings.. Now that I have bored you to death on RC LiPo battery basics, time to get into the main topics at hand.. First are ratings, specifically voltage and capacity.. These are the two main numbers you will need when going battery shopping.. There is a third number you will also need to be aware of which I will get to in just a bit.. VOLTAGE.. Unlike conventional NiCad or NiMH battery cells that have a voltage of 1.. 2 volts per cell, LiPo battery cells are rated at 3.. 7 volts per cell.. The benefit here is fewer cells can be used to make up a battery pack and in some cases on smaller micro sized RC aircraft like Blade mCX's, mSR, mCP, or 120 SR one 3.. 7 volt cell is all that is needed to power the model.. Other than the smallest of electric RC models, RC LiPo battery packs will have at least two or more cells hooked up in series to provide higher voltages.. For larger RC models that number can be as high as 6 cells and even more for larger birds or HV (high voltage) applications.. Here is a list of LiPo RC battery pack voltages with cell counts most beginners will be using.. If you are wondering what the 2-12S in parenthesis means; it is a way the battery manufactures indicate how my cells hooked in series (S) the battery pack contains.. 7 volt battery = 1 cell x 3.. 7 volts (1S).. 4 volt battery = 2 cells x 3.. 7 volts (2S).. 1 volt battery = 3 cells x 3.. 7 volts (3S).. 8 volt battery = 4 cells x 3.. 7 volts (4S).. 18.. 5 volt battery = 5 cells x 3.. 7 volts (5S).. 22.. 2 volt battery = 6 cells x 3.. 7 volts (6S).. 29.. 6 volt battery = 8 cells x 3.. 7 volts (8S).. 37.. 0 volt battery = 10 cells x 3.. 7 volts (10S).. 44.. 4 volt battery = 12 cells x 3.. 7 volts (12S).. I should point out you may run across packs or cells hooked up in parallel to increase the capacity.. This is indicated by a number followed by a "P".. Example: 3S2P would indicate 2, three celled series packs hooked up in parallel to double the capacity.. So, those are the voltages you need to know and each RC model or more specifically, the motor/speed controller combination will indicate what voltage is required for correct operation/RPM.. This number has to be followed to the letter in most cases since a change in voltage equates to a change in RPM and will require changing the gearing but more likely the motor to a higher or lower Kv rating - not something I want to get into in this write-up.. If a model calls for a 3 cell (3S) 11.. 1 volt battery – lets just say that is what has to be used unless you want to open a whole new can of worms.. A quick word on motor ratings.. Many people new to electric flight get confused by brushless electric motor ratings, specifically the Kv rating thinking Kv = kilo-volts (1 kV = 1000 volts).. This is not the case at all.. The Kv rating of a brushless motor refers to how many RPM it turns per volt.. An example might be something like a 1000 Kv motor with a voltage range of 10 - 25 volts.. That would mean this motor will turn at about 10,000 RPM @ 10 volts up to around 25,000 RPM @ 25 volts.. I don't want to start into motor ratings; battery ratings are plenty to get through.. I just thought I would make mention of it since I do get that "Kilo-Volt" question often.. CAPACITY.. Capacity indicates how much power the battery pack can hold and is indicated in milliamp hours (mAh).. This is just a fancy way of saying how much load or drain (measured in milliamps) can be put on the battery for 1 hour at which time the battery will be fully discharged.. For example a RC LiPo battery that is rated at 1000 mAh would be completely discharged in one hour with a 1000 milliamp load placed on it.. If this same battery had a 500 milliamp load placed on it, it would take 2 hours to drain down.. If the load was increased to around 15,000 milliamps (15 amps) a very common current drain in a 400 sized RC helicopter while hovering, the time to drain the battery would be only about 4 minutes.. As you can see, for a RC model with that kind of current draw, it would be very advantageous to use a larger capacity battery pack such as a 2000 mAh pack.. This larger pack used with a 15 amp draw would double the time to about 8 minutes till the pack was discharged.. The main thing to get out of this is if you want more flight time; increase the capacity of your battery pack.. Unlike voltage, capacity can be changed around to give you more or less flight time.. Of course because of size restrictions and weight you have to stay within a certain battery capacity range seeing that the more capacity a battery pack has, the larger and heavier it will be.. DISCHARGE RATE.. Remember that third number I was talking about when you go RC LiPo battery shopping? Yes, discharge rate is that number.. This one is probably the single most over rated miss understood of all battery ratings.. Discharge rate is simply how fast a battery can be discharged safely.. Remember that ion exchange thing further up the page? Well the faster the ions can flow from anode to cathode in a battery will indicate the discharge rate.. In the RC LiPo battery world it is called the “C” rating.. What does it mean?.. Well Capacity begins with “C” so that should give you a pretty good idea.. A battery with a discharge rating of 10C would mean you could discharge it at a rate 10 times more than the capacity of the pack, a 15C pack = 15 times more, a 20C pack = 20 times more, and so on.. Let's use our 1000 mAh battery as an example; if it was rated at 10C that would mean you could pull a maximum sustained load up to 10,000 milliamps or 10 amps off that battery (10 x 1000 milliamps = 10,000 milliamps or 10 amps).. From a time stand point, this equals 166 mAh of draw a minute so the 1000 mAh pack would be exhausted in about 6 minutes.. This is calculated by first determining the mAh per minute of the pack.. 1000 mAh divided by 60 minutes = 16.. 6 mAh's per minute.. You then multiply that number by the C rating (10 in this case) = 166 mAh of draw per minute divided into the packs capacity (1000 mA) = 6.. 02 minutes.. How about a 20C rating on a 2000 mAh battery? 20 x 2000 = 40,000 milliamps or 40 amps.. Time wise, a 40 amp draw on this pack would exhaust it in about 3 minutes (2000/60= 33.. 3 multiplied by 20c = 666 mAh per minute - divided into the packs capacity of 2000 mA = 3 minutes).. As you can see, that is a pretty short flight and unless you are drawing the maximum power for the entire flight, it is unlikely you would ever come close to those numbers.. Most RC LiPo Battery packs will show the continuous C rating and some are now indicating a burst rating as well.. A burst rating indicates the battery discharge rate for short bursts of extended power.. An example might be something like “Discharge rate = 20C Continuous / 40C Bursts”.. The higher the C rating, usually the more expensive the battery.. This is where you can save some money.. Getting a high discharge rated pack when there is no way you could possibly pull the full amount of power is not required but it won't hurt either.. The most important thing is you can't go with too low a discharge C rating or you will damage your battery and possibly your ESC (electronic speed control).. So how do you know what C rating to get when purchasing your LiPo RC Battery Pack? The easy answer most will give is to get the largest C rating you can.. If money is not an object I agree with  ...   charge.. The above picture shows a dedicated 3 cell charger charging a 3 cell RC LiPo battery through the balancing plug/tap.. The limitation here is the maximum charge rate.. Since the gauge of balance plug wiring is small, this method only works on smaller LiPo's or charge rates not much higher then 2.. 5 amps maximum.. A good clue if you are pushing too many amps through the balance leads would be a warm/hot balance plug/wiring.. LiPo’s can be balanced with a stand alone balancer such as a Blinky Balancer while the pack is being charged through the main power plug.. Shown here is a computerized charger charging a 3 cell LiPo pack through the main power plug with the Blinky balancer hooked up to the balance plug.. The Blinky will monitor the voltage of each cell in the pack and apply a small load to discharge any cell that is indicating a charge voltage higher than the other cells in the pack keeping all cells within about 0.. 02 volts (20 mV) of each other.. A RC LiPo pack can also be balanced with a stand alone balancer after charging the pack through the main power plug.. Again in this picture, the Blinky balancer is hooked up to the balancing plug, but this time after the pack was charged.. Obviously this method of balancing is theoretically not as safe for the LiPo pack since one or more cells could be overcharged during charging, but it will balance all the cells and keeps them in check for the discharge cycle and subsequent charge cycles.. Finally the very best way to balance and charge a LiPo battery is by using a computerized charger with built-in balance circuitry.. With this set-up, the battery is charged through the main power plug and the balance plug/tap is plunged into what is called a balance board which is in-turn plugged into the computerized charger in most cases; however, some chargers will have the different balance ports built into the charger eliminating the need for a separate balance board.. Good computerized chargers (like that little TP-610C pictured above) with built-in balance circuitry, will confirm correct cell count, alter the charge balance rates, and when balancing actually occurs in the charge cycle to ensure a "stress free" and safe charge/balance cycle that extends the useful life of the LiPo pack.. This is by far the safest way to charge higher capacity multi celled LiPo's and opens up a whole new world to more advanced charging methods such as multiple pack parallel charging (the way I charge my LiPo's most of the time now).. Balancing Plugs/Taps.. Balancing plugs/taps currently come in four different configurations (for the most part) and it is important to know which one your balancing charger, stand alone balancer, or balance board supports so you choose the correct plug type when purchasing your RC LiPo battery.. JST-XH Plug.. This is the most common balancing plug type.. Used On: Align, E-Flite, Common Sense RC (V2), Great Planes, Dualsky, Esky, Electrifly, Losi, Rhino, Team Great Hobbies, Trinity, Turnigy, Venom, Zippy - just to name a few.. Thunder Power Plugs.. Used On: Thunder Power, FlightPower, Apex, EVO, MPX, Outrage, and a few other battery brands.. Polyquest Plugs.. Used On: Polyquest, E-tec, True RC, Extreme Power, Impulse, Enermax, Hyperion, Poly RC, Xcite, Fliton, and a few others.. JST-EH Plugs.. These are probably the least common type of balancing plug, but you will find them on a few big name battery brands such as: Kokam, Graupner, Core, and older Vampower battery packs.. Main Power Plugs.. Once again there are several out there depending on your power handling requirements and own personal preference.. Getting one type and sticking with it is the easiest way to go since all your connectors will be the same as will your charging plug/s.. Here are the 7 most common (there are certainly more):.. JST Connector.. This is a small power plug rated for up to 5 amps of continuous load.. It is used on smaller battery packs (usually under 1500 mAh) for powering small park fliers and micro electric helis, or for powering on board electronics (receiver, servos, gyros, governors, etc.. ) in higher end models with dedicated RX packs.. Deans Ultra Connectors.. These are a very popular connector type (also called "T" connectors) with a very loyal following, which unfortunately has driven the price up made them one of the most expensive connectors around.. They are rated for up to 50 amps of continuous load.. EC3 Connectors.. EC3's are becoming very popular as they use true "bullet style" connection pins and are rated for up to 60 amps of continuous load.. Most will agree bullet pins make for the best possible connection when dealing with high current applications due to a larger surface contact area.. EC5 Connectors.. These are a longer version of the EC3 and because the bullet pins are longer (5mm) they have an even greater surface area for contact.. EC5's are rated for up to 120 amps of continuous load.. Perfect for large 1/4 scale electrics and 700 size electric helis.. hexTronik XT-60 Connectors.. XT-60 connectors are getting more and more popular due to the very good pricing and performance.. Like the EC3 connectors they use gold plated bullet pins and have a slightly higher 65 amp current rating.. Made with high temperature nylon, they don't melt when soldering if you get a little carried away and they are the best plug I have ever used when it comes to the ease of plugging and unplugging.. More and more people are converting from Dean's to hexTronik XT-60's these days and are so happy they made the switch (I'm one of them).. If you are just starting out with electric powered RC, you are in a wonderful position to select this plug type for medium/medium high power applications from the start!.. Tamiya Connectors.. These are lower amperage connectors once very popular, especially with the electric RC car, truck, and boat crowd, but since high amp LiPo's have entered the scene, Tamiya plugs are used less and less.. You still will find them used for powering smaller models and some types of nitro starting systems.. Traxxas Connectors.. As the name suggests, Traxxas battery connectors are used exclusively on electric Traxxas RC vehicles/boats but can be fit to any high current application up to about 100 amps.. These are a nice connector that many say are one of the nicest to plug and unplug.. The three most common main power plugs you will come across (for average load applications in the RC aircraft realm) are the Deans Ultra's, the EC3's, and the XT-60's.. I have used all 3 and like the EC3 and XT60's the best.. EC'3 are nice because the soldering connection is concealed within the plug so you don't need to use heat shrink to insulate the solder connection.. The downside is, if you ever have to unsolder the wiring from the plug, most of the time the plug is damaged trying to get the pins out.. Deans Ultras and XT-60's on the other hand could short while soldering if you are not careful - it has happened to me a couple times and the tip of my soldering iron vaporized with the huge current that arced across the pins - it wakes you up pretty fast! The other issue on the Dean's is if the heat is applied too long or at too high a temp, you will melt the actual plug or loosen the pins within the plug; the nylon XT60's are much better in this respect as well.. Dean's plugs also arc excessively when plugging into high capacity ESC's, not so much so with bullet pin connectors like the XT60's and EC's.. I do however find EC3's EC5's stiffer to connect and disconnect; that is where most people find the Deans Ultra's a little easier and the XT-60 even better - they couple and uncouple very easily for the most part.. In the end, it is personal preference and more dependent on what type of plug your ESC or your LiPo's come with.. Many RC LiPo batteries and ESC's actually don’t come with any plug type (just the two wire ends insulated with heat shrink).. If you purchase a battery/ESC like that, make sure you purchase the correct main plug type and ensure your soldering skills are up to the task.. Otherwise, better search for a battery/ESC that comes with the correct plug type already in place.. Here’s an artical video on how to solder an EC3 connector to get an idea of what’s involved.. Soldering a XT60 or Deans type T plug is very much the same, other than having to use heat shrink tubing to insulate the soldered tabs.. Charging Safety.. I am not going to go into a lengthy safety speech here – there are enough warnings that come with RC LiPo battery instructions that will give you all the information needed; specifically you should charge your LiPo’s in a fire safe area / fire proof charging container and never unattended.. That last point is easy to print in the instructions, but rarely practical in the real world.. Personally I don’t have the time to sit down by my charging station in the workshop to keep an ever watchful eye on my LiPo packs charging - that is akin to watching the grass grow.. Here are my 4 simple LiPo Charging Safety Tips that I follow :.. I charge all my multi celled LiPo’s (7.. 4 volt or higher) in fire resistant containers I made out of some left over slate floor tiles.. Fire proof bags are also a great item to get and weigh much less for easy transport and storage.. I always wait at least 15 minutes after using a LiPo to let it cool down before charging it.. This prolongs the life of the LiPo and prevents possible overheating and damage.. I never leave the house (preferably the room) when charging LiPo’s.. Lastly – I purchased an inexpensive smoke detector that I have mounted above my charging station so in the unlikely event a pack bursts during a charge cycle or while in storage, the smoke detector will sound and I will be alerted.. I also have a small fire extinguisher mounted on the wall in my workshop for any fire that may occur, not just a LiPo fire.. This may seem excessive, chances are it is.. but after watching the video below, I feel these are worthwhile precautions.. Almost every documented LiPo fire has occurred as a result of physical damage to the pack, (after a crash for example, or butter fingers dropping the pack on the hard concrete floor) or during charging, and resulted from a human error.. Keep that in mind if you feel these batteries are too dangerous - they are in fact very safe if the rules are obeyed - they are as safe or dangerous as you want them to be.. I really got an appreciation of how strong a LiPo foil pouch is even when something goes drastically wrong.. An example a 6s 5000 mAh pack that had a faulty cell and shorted internally during a flight.. This one cell completely ballooned and got very hot - too hot to touch in fact and I was sure the pack was going to blow after I landed.. That was not the case however and the foil pouch cell contained all the boiled off electrolyte.. It was tight as a drum mind you, but no venting or fire occurred.. A very rare occurrence.. Speaking of swollen or "puffed" LiPo packs, I get asked this question a lot.. LiPo cells can and will swell a very little bit, especially if they are getting pretty warm during use.. This is nothing to get too alarmed over.. It is actually somewhat normal (again based on how hard you run the packs and how much they heat up) and as long as it is very-very minor swelling goes away after the pack cools down you have nothing to worry about.. As packs age, the swelling can get a little worse (again because the internal resistance gets higher and they start running hotter).. As a LiPo pack is nearing the end of it's useful life it can show some very minor swelling that won't go away, even after the pack cools.. This pack may still have some nice non aggressive flights left in it however, so treat it kindly with gentler flying/driving in its early retirement before sending it to the LiPo grave yard (AKA, the trash can).. Yes LiPo's are non toxic so they can be disposed of in the trash once fully discharged.. Breaking In RC LiPo Batteries.. Breaking in a new LiPo pack is a good practice I feel, even though many say you don't have to do it.. Just like an new engine, not pushing your new LiPo to the maximum limits the first time out may give it added life and performance over the years.. The general break in method is very simple.. For the first few uses (perhaps 4 or 5), don't fly/drive too aggressively, keep the charge rates low (1C or lower), and don't discharge down past 50% of the battery's capacity.. RC LiPo Battery Storage.. Well, you now know how a LiPo battery works, the safety concerns, what to look for when purchasing one, how to charge and balance one and why it’s important, what more is there???.. STORAGE!.. How you store your LiPo’s between uses will greatly affect their life span.. As I mentioned, a LiPo cell that drops below 3 volts under load is almost always irreversibly damaged (reduced capacity or total inability to accept a charge).. 3 volts under load is generally equates to about 3.. 5 volts open circuit resting voltage, oo if your batteries are stored for any period of time after you use them at close to that magic 3.. 5 volt per cell number, you risk much.. As batteries sit, they will naturally self discharge.. LiPo’s are actually very good in this respect and self discharge much slower than most other rechargeable battery types, but they still do loose voltage as they sit.. If you leave them for a number of weeks or months at close to 3.. 5 volts per cell, chances are they will drop below that and will be irreversibly damaged.. You must store them charged, but not fully charged either – that will also damage them.. Basically, the speed at which a LiPo pack ages (during storage) is based on both storage temperature and state of charge.. You are likely ok to store a fully charged RC LiPo battery at room temperature for up to 4 days without doing much damage.. Never store a LiPo in a hot car fully charged for an extended time, that will certainly cause damage as I explained earlier, but it worth repeating.. For optimum battery life, store your RC LiPo batteries at room temperature and at about 40-60% charged.. That equates to around 3.. 85 volts per cell (open terminal resting voltage).. The actual storage range is likely a little broader than this (I have heard some say numbers as high as 20-80% is fine, but since computerized chargers set the storage charge at 50% (3.. 85 volts per cell) that's what I recommend and what I follow myself.. You can actually extend the fully charged storage time from days to weeks by storing your batteries in the fridge (not freezer) close to 0 degrees Celsius (32F).. I have started doing this with my smaller packs seeing that I will often find myself wanting to go flying with little lead time and it is very convenient having packs all ready fully charged.. If you do store your fully charged LiPo's in the fridge, pack them in a zip-lock freezer bag and squeeze out all the air before sealing the bag.. This will prevent condensation forming on the battery packs when you take them out of the fridge as they warm up.. You should allow the LiPo pack to warm up after removing from the fridge before using it of course.. I only store in cold temps if I know I will be flying within a 2-3 week time frame.. Once winter hits and I know my flying days will be limited, I once again store at 50% charge @ room temp.. It wouldn't hurt to store at 50% charge capacity in the fridge all the time either; but it takes up precious beer chillin' real estate (priorities you know).. RC LiPo Battery Conclusion.. Wow, this RC LiPo battery basics was a BIG topic! Hopefully you have a better understanding of what makes a RC LiPo battery tick, how to properly care for one, and a few recommendations.. On top of that, what I really wanted to get across is that even though electric powered RC flight may not seem as complicated or fussy as fuel powered, there is much more to it than most people first realize..
