Proper storage is crucial for maintaining the performance and lifespan of LiPo batteries. Here are some general guidelines for storing LiPo batteries:
- Charge the battery to the recommended storage voltage: Before storing your LiPo battery, it’s important to charge it to the recommended storage voltage, typically around 50-60% of its maximum capacity, or 3.7-3.85V per cell for a 2S LiPo battery. This helps to prevent the LiPo battery from becoming fully charged or fully discharged, which can damage the battery over time.
- Store the LiPo battery in a cool, dry place: LiPo batteries should be stored in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight, heat sources, or moisture. Exposure to high temperatures or humidity can damage the LiPo battery and reduce its overall lifespan.
- Use a fireproof storage bag or container: To reduce the risk of fire or explosion, storing LiPo batteries in a fireproof storage bag or container is recommended. These bags or containers are designed to contain any potential fire or explosion due to a battery failure.
- Check the LiPo battery periodically: It’s a good practice to check the voltage of your LiPo battery periodically during storage to ensure it remains within the recommended range. If the voltage drops too low, you may need to recharge the LiPo battery to the recommended storage voltage.
- Avoid storing LiPo batteries for extended periods: Storing them for extended periods can impact their overall performance and lifespan. If you don’t plan to use your battery for several months, it’s recommended to discharge it to the recommended storage voltage and then recharge it to the same level every 3-6 months to maintain its health.
Following these guidelines can help you store your LiPo battery safely and maintain its performance over time.
A 2S LiPo (Lithium Polymer) battery should be stored at a nominal voltage of around 7.4 volts (V), or 3.7V per cell. However, the recommended storage voltage for LiPo batteries can vary slightly depending on the manufacturer’s specifications and the specific chemistry and design of the battery.
As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to store LiPo batteries at a voltage between 3.7V and 3.85V per cell. This helps to prevent the battery from becoming fully charged or fully discharged, which can cause long-term damage to the battery’s capacity and performance.
Many LiPo battery chargers include a storage mode that automatically discharges or charges the battery to the recommended storage voltage, which is typically around 50-60% of the battery’s maximum capacity. If your charger doesn’t have a storage mode, you can manually charge or discharge the battery to the appropriate voltage level using a compatible LiPo battery charger.
It’s important to note that storing LiPo batteries for extended periods can also impact their overall performance and lifespan. To help preserve the battery’s health, storing LiPo batteries in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight or heat sources, is recommended. It’s also a good practice to check the battery’s voltage periodically during storage and recharge it as necessary to maintain the recommended storage voltage.
