    360, store it at half it's capacity. And fully cycle it once a month.

    RE: HOW DO YOU STORE YOUR BATTERIES?

    You really need a better charger.....
    I have a TP 1010C and a TP 210V ballancer. this combo allows a 50% charge for storage.
    You want a stable tempature allso, a "wine fridge" is best, they run @ 45 degrees F.
    I now wonder why a "Tech Support" would not tell you that?

    OldSloppy,

    He asked a simple question and I answered it. As for storing them in a fridge it hasn't been proven to help or harm a pack so there is no need to mention it. And if you main goal is to start a fight.....take it some place else. This is a support forum for customers of MaxAmps and those that need help or have questions about our products. I will not stoop a childish level of bashing and b*tching with anyone who comes here looking for an argument.

    Have a Nice Day

    360,

    It depends on how many cells you need to charge. If you go here http://www.maxamps.com/products.php?cat=33 you'll see what we have to offer for chargers and here http://www.maxamps.com/products.php?cat=34 for balancers. Take a look and if you have any questions just ask.

    I would like to take this moment to apoligize to "JAM".
    I did not mean to start an arguement.
    I am sad you think I am "childish".
    Sorry, I used poor wording on my part.

    RE: HOW DO YOU STORE YOUR BATTERIES?

    I store all my maxamps packs at full charge if i am not going to run for a couple of weeks . If i know i am going to run the following week they are stored at the same capacity as they came off the track at unless the pack dumped during the race and then it gets discharged at 30 amps and then trayed after it cools and then charged to it full capacity.I have been doing my batteries this way for two years now and I have had good results!
