    Hi All,

    I'm trying to be proactive and discharge my batteries to store them, and i've seen that some threads mention "STORAGE MODE" but not any other details, like how to get them into this mode

    My strategy thus far has been to leave the batts on the movi until it shuts down then store them in this state.

    Any ideas? What do you suggest?

    Thanks!

    Mark

    Generally with Lipos, you want to store them in the middle of their charge, which is around 3.8V per cell. On a 6s battery, that would be at 22.8V. Or just drain them to two lights on the battery, and it’s probably ok.

    Yep, with nothing but a tiny camera on the Movi and no power supplied to anything else, when the Movi shuts down there are 2 lights on the batteries. That's been my general rule, but after a couple months of non use, I'm running them through the cycles a couple of times which got me thinking...

    Thanks Graham
