Default help, my 2400s have been sitting for 1.5 years... what to do?

Hey I have a couple 2400 packs that have been sitting for maybe a year and a half maybe even close to 2 years. I need to know what I should do to revive these packs and get some performance back.

I havn't charged them yet and I have two millennium pro chargers... I'm not sure at how many amps and cycles I should do before I run these.

thanks

Charge them at 4 amps and discharge them two or three times and they will wake up.

just cycle the batteries. as stated- around 4 amps charge and then discharge- do this a few times. Also it may still take a few runs on the car to regain lost performance
