    how to store batteries properly

    i have 4 8.4v batts and i am gonna take a break on rc stuff. should i run the batts down and then put them up or should i give them a full charge and let them sit. keep i mind the batts are only going to sit for 2 weeks or maybe a month. im just tired of breaking stuff and im tired of spending money all of the time. So if anyone has any info please let me know.

    store them fully charged and check them atleast every week-2weeks as they self discharge and you dont want them to discharge too far, when checking repeak them again and go for another week or 2 should be fine. i know how it is spending money for parts or something that keeps needing parts, its like a endless cycle but part of the hobby.

    Just leave them uncharged... I left mine for a year before using them in a parade... Worked fine the whole way!

    Please do your best to make sure you are giving good advice before you give it. The above does not qualify.
