Default RE: *1800 mAH Battery In Cold Storage*

I leave my batteries in my planes during the winter and cycle them all about once a month. The up side to cycling is that it will find a bad pack befor you lose the plane. As for buying new batteries every year, not for me. I have way to many and the bigger packs are in the neighborhood of $40.00 each. I have also discovered that new packs fail after a few charges and cycles. I have bought 2 Hangor 9 packs that did not last a full summer and failed, so I figure it is at best a roll of the dice. I just take care of what I have and I am confident in the batteries that I have. Cycle yours and I think you will just fine. You may also want to look in the batteries section of RCU and seek out Red, an RCU moderator, who is an expert on batteries. Good Luck, Dave
