hey i was wondering if you charge a battery and dont use it for a few days, does that ruin the performance for that batt for that charge. ok thats confusing. i mean i charged a set of batteries two days ago, and i just used them today. it was cold out but they usually do fine, but today they just seemed blah, not a very long run time or good power. so is it best to use your batteries once they cool down from charge or what?

yea, because of how abusive the maxx is on batts, they usily dont hold a fresh charge for more then a day. im suprised you got 2 days. how old are the batts?

My packs do that to. If I charge them on Sunday and run them 2-3 days later, they don't have a lot of punch. If I charge them and run them 2-3 hours later, they run great.
