Default Lipo storage charge

Hey fellas, quick question. Is it normal for the voltage to go down when putting a storage charge on a battery? When I started the storage charge the cells showed about 4.14v and now 30 minutes later it shows 4.01v. I doubled checked to make sure it wasn't on discharge mode. Is this normal and if so what voltage reading should the cells reach when the storage charge is complete?

Maybe I should just recharge the battery instead. Thoughts?

Thanks!

When I use storage mode on my Hyperion 720i it puts the packs at around 3.8v/cell.

That's normal for a good charger when set for lipo storage mode. Storage voltage is ~3.8 - 3.85v/cell and a good charger will either discharge the lipo down to storage value or actually charge the cells depending on the starting voltage.

Dishcarging is usually pretty slow since most chargers have low discharge wattage. If your lipo voltage is high, its faster to discharge it in your RC and then let charger bring voltage back up to storage voltage.

Does anyone know if the hyperion duo 3 has the storage feature ? I'm thinking of buying one but couldn't find any info on it .
