I need to know if they should be stored fully charged or down to the min.charge. Thanks Jeff Mallette

Hi Jeff,

you can best stored the batteries min.charge. Then you put him in the freezer (only when you store him longer as 1 month). That is the best way to be stored the nicads.

i've also found that storing nicads fully discharged works best.

Just to confirm what has already been stated, the article by Mark Juhrig on LiPo batteries in the February 2004 edition of MHW says that:

NiCd should be stored discharged
NiMH should be stored charged or partially charged
LiPo should be stored charged

PS Do you have a brother called Timmy?

Storing NiCds discharged is the only way to keep them very long. I've gotten totally away from them now and only run Duralites and it's much better. It's more expensive but they pay for themselves many times over.
