Default How should I store my batteries?

Racing season is over here, and I need to store my battieries for a extended period of time. What would be the best method for doing this? I have all kinds of batteries: 1700, 2000, 2400, and 3000s. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I ruined 2 packs last summer because I didn't store the right . Thanks.

Default Storing batteries

Modena AL;

The NiCd packs should be stored in a Discharged state 0.9 volts/cell or less. A battery tray is the best way to discharge them.

NiMh (3000+) packs should be stored with about a 40% charge in them.

For all packs it is recommended to cycle them once a month while in storage.
