How to discharge/store LiPo battery

Craig FlemingCraig Fleming Club Members Posts: 2

I'm using a Turnigy charging solution for my LiPo batteries. I want to discharge and store a 1300 Zippy 11.1v 3S 20C battery and the only option I'm not sure about is selecting the amps when choosing 'Storage' mode. What is the ideal setting for this? The manual just says it isn't to exceed 1.0A which is the maximum setting. So, does that mean to do it really safely I set it to the minimum of 0.1A or is there a formula to calculate exactly what value this should be for this particular battery?

Sorry if this has been posted somewhere else.

    Just let it run at 1Amp. Charger will get warm and is normal. Will be fine.

    La tensión para almacenar una bateria lipo (POLIMERO DE LITIO ) ES DE 3,8 Voltios , esto lo hacen de forma automatica los cargadores modernos en la posición para almacenamiento , la intensidad de descarga solo influye en el tiempo para alcanzar los 3,8 voltios.
