i charged 3 lipos to take to the field

can i leave them fully charged while storing ?

and my charger settings for storage range from 0.1 to 0.4

do i use 0.1 or 0.4 ?

and discharging for storage seems like it takes just as long as it did when i charged them at 4 in the morning what a pain in the butt.

2711 I store my lipo's at 50% charge.
my charger does not have a percentage option

it only has 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 and the option to change the voltages

does it damage the lipo if its stored fully charged ?

To be honest, I'm not sure if it will damage them. I'll leave that to someone smarter than I am. I just know that most lipos come with a 50 % charge so that's how I store mine. I have some that are 3 years old and still going pretty well.

Thats a fancy charger..what kind is it ?

Try 3.75V / cell for a storage charge.

Yes...storing for more than a few days at full charge can have detrimental side effects.

Not to hijack the thread but just what are the side effects to storing a fully charges lipo? I always wondered.

Loss of capacity.

More voltage sag during discharge.

It is oxidizing ( aging ) faster.

Storing a fully charges lipo?Only for a day or 2. Any more loss of capacity will start.

If it helps your (thunder ac6) is a relabeled Imax-B6ac. Theres quite a bit of info available for the B6 all of which equally applies to your charger.
