Store the battery at a cool, dry place with a temperature between 50-77F (10-25C). Avoid storing the battery in a hot or humid environment.

Store the battery with a partial charge (30-50%) rather than fully charged or fully discharged.

Avoid overcharging or overdischarging the battery. Overcharging can cause the battery to balloon or vent, while overdischarging can damage the battery cells. Use a LiPo battery charger and monitor the battery's voltage to ensure it is charged and discharged within the recommended range.

Balance charge the battery regularly. A balance charger is a special type of charger that charges each cell of the battery individually, ensuring that all cells are evenly charged and balanced.

Avoid physical damage to the battery. Do not drop, puncture, or otherwise damage the battery.

Avoid shorting the battery. Do not allow the battery's positive and negative terminals to come into contact with each other or with a conductor, as this can cause a short circuit and potentially damage the battery.

Use a storage charge when the battery will not be used for an extended period of time. A storage charge is a lower charge rate (usually around 3.8V per cell) that is used to maintain the battery's charge while in storage. This can help prevent the battery from discharging too much and damaging the cells.
