    Need lipo help newbie

    Iíve already ruined a new set of traxxas batteries by not putting them in storage mode before storing. So Iíve seen 3.8 is recommended for storage. Do we have to hit storage mode or can I just run the truck and then charge back up to 3.8 and store?

    How long did it take? I've had my batteries charged for over a week before running them and had no problems.

    Balanced to 3.8v per cell. Storage mode on your charger will stop charging at that voltage rather than you stopping it at 3.8 in balance mode.
