LiPo batteries should not be stored with a full charge when not in use and should be stored at room temperature. What I recommend is to put your LiPo batteries in storage mode after every run. The ideal storage voltage is 3.7v per cell, Which is the nominal voltage of each cell.

All Lipo manufacturers and suppliers advice that you MUST store Lipo batteries at about 50% charge. Storing at 100%/fully charged will cause an increase in the resistance of the battery, meaning that it may not be able to supply the needed current after a long storage or it will heat up more during flight, causing the battery to die much faster.

A lithium Polymer cell or Lipo cell is labeled as 3.7 volts. The cell actually ranges from 3.0V (fully discharged) to 4.2V (fully charged). Going above 4.2V or below 3.0V will cause a pack to lose capacity and performance. This will happen to the point of failure during discharge and can actually cause a fire during a charge.

Storing LiPo batteries fully charged or fully depleted can actually damage the battery over time. LiPo batteries need to be discharged and stored with cell voltages near nominal, at 3.8v. If you haven’t used your battery in a few days, and are not planning to, it’s a good idea to put the battery in storage mode.
LiPo battery is a short-term for Lithium polymer battery. LiPo battery is a rechargeable battery and is said to provide higher energy than different lithium-battery types. By the way, you can also read about how to dispose of lithium batteries.
How to Dispose of Puffed Lipo Batteries The proper way to dispose of a swollen lipo battery is the same as what you would do when you throw out any old battery. You need to discharge it completely first. The two main methods that people use to discharge a battery completely is to hook it up to a light bulb or to put it in a bucket of salt water.
This automatically charges or discharges your battery until it reaches 3.8 volts, making storage prep easy. Set your charger to the storage setting and plug the battery in until it’s finished. LiPo batteries charge and discharge slowly. The process should take about an hour.
