Default Lipo storage

can anyone shed some light as to what amperage I should use when charging my lipos for storage? I have 1800 mah and 2200 mah batteries.
Thanks for any help,
Sam

It won't matter , it is up to the user. They should rest at 3.7 volts/cell.

1.8 amps and 2.2 amps (or 1C) is the generally accepted norm. The more important factor is the storage voltage, not the rate at which they are charged.
