i was wondering i have an outdoor shed that i converted into my heli shop, it gets very hot inside in the summer. my question is this i have a small refridge out in my shed would it be ok to leave the lipos inside the fridge as long as i keep the temp cool , not freezing!

Yeah, store them half charged (3.8v/pc) and put them in a bag which is air tight to stop moisture!

Let them warm back up to 30C+ before using at least.

My heli shed's getting to 40C in the sun. A little too hot to store lipos at, and to hot to work in lol!

I don't think I would risk the chance of moisture....and if its really hot outside when you take them out it will create condensation just like anything you take out of the fridge and put into a warm environment.....I don't think I would

(only run if I do!)

I see no issue with what Technex said, in addition though maybe wrap them in a paper towel...I think they will be just fine...

I store mine in the house in an old steel tool or tackle box. I do the same thing with my helis so they don't rust.(in the house, not in a tackle box)

I agree, I would still store them in the house myself but no danger storing outside if you keep temps down low.

I like to store them out of the sun on top of a metal box in the house (which acts as a good heatsink after flying).

This is what I use,

http://www.johnlewis.com/230333901/Product.aspx

It's a wine chiller, not too big and very quiet as it's based on a solid state Peltier effect cooling device. It could have been custom designed for keeping LiPos cool!

Not if you want higher power, lighter weight, less vibes, less mess, less noise (more blade noise), less smoke and cheaper runs.
