    3.8 volts per cell IS storage voltage. I would have cycled them every 6 weeks or so, but from what you have written, they seem to be fine.

    "For long term storage ... cycle/use the packs every 6 weeks. This will keep the chemicals active and reduce chances of issues due to the chemicals being inactive. You can fully charge the pack then discharge it down to the recommended voltage and store it in a room that is dry and at room temperature."
