Battery storage is just as important as battery usage. Make sure to follow these steps to keep your battery safe and prolong its life.

Battery Storage

After using the battery, give it approximately 30 minutes to cool down.

Determine when the battery will be used going forward. If the battery will be used again within 24 hours, proceed to fully charge the battery. The goal is to minimize the time lithium batteries sit fully charged. Long periods of maintaining full charge will dramatically reduce the lifespan of the battery pack, and can lead to swelling/premature failure.

If the battery will not be used in the next 24-48 hours, please proceed with a storage cycle, as demonstrated in the video below.

The storage voltage range is typically between 3.70-3.85V per cell. However, lower voltages, down to 3.4V per cell are unlikely to cause issues, especially over shorter time periods. If the battery will be in storage for more than a week, it’s best to perform a proper storage cycle as time permits.
