    Hi i apologise in advance. I have a simple question. When I am not using my movi for a week. I should set the lipo batteries to 'storage' charge? How do I do this? and what settings do I configure in a typical charger to do this?

    Charles,
    I wouldn't worry about your batteries if it's only a week between uses. If you decide to go on a long vacation or take a hiatus from the MoVI world, then I would uncharge them to storage mode.

    However, be careful you don't actual use the discharge setting. It is designed to drain every last drop out of a "retired" battery. If you do this on a good battery, it will ruin it.

    See the manual, page 18, Charles. Take them to storage charge as soon as convenient.
    For a 4S pack, that's 15.4 volts or thereabouts.

    Andy.
