    Lipo charge and hold

    Hi all pretty new to lipo batteries but got ask this question as I'm fed up of charging batteries then off out with the spartan. If I pre charge the lipos roughly how long should they keep their charge. Any help greatly appreciated

    For long term lipo health I would not charge them more than 2-3 days out prior to running. Otherwise store them at a storage voltage of roughly 11.5v for a 3s pack for anything more than 2-3 days. You could probably get away with about 7 days of a stored charge, but it breaks down the cells over time, and if you want your batteries to last, thats not the best practice. For optimal results, charge them right before use or the night before.
