Default Battery Hibernation??

OK....so indoor season is over (or nearly over) for many of us. Question is, how do we prepare our expensive battery packs for long term storage so that they can live to kick butt another day. Can we teach them to hibernate? Or, do we have to fret over them all summer?

It would be cool if there was some way to "set em and forget em" for a few months, wouldn't it?

Any ideas??

This years race packs are next years practice packs.

I just did this last night in fact. I charge my packs up the whole way let them sit for a couple months, discharge and recharge and hope them make it through. I keep the good ones for practice get new race packs and then anything that I have left over I give to kids at the track.
