2 of my Zippy-H 2200 30C battery lost their power after not using them for 3 weeks. I charged them up and cell3 don't want to get past 4.18v on both of them close enough so I just fly them, noticeable drop of power compare to other zippy I got recently. But still fly able, just don't have the punch anymore. Only about .12v difference after discharged not too bad.

They were bought last fall and probably got over 100 charges on them. Well worth the $$$!

did you store them for the 3 weeks fully charged? that can damage lipos. they may recover somewhat after a few charge/discharge cycles.

good to hear, just like a car batteries like to be used!! Sitting for extended periods let certain parts of the chemistry go south. a few cycles usually restores things.
