A year is enough for me.2 years even better.Unfortunately all my lipos after 2-3 months of use are almost dead.

depends on how they're treated of course. what voltage are you charging them to? what's your cut off set to? are they getting hot when you run them?

My cut off voltage is on 6,2v.I charge them on 1C and when i have time even on 1/2 C (about 2400mA).I run them for 5-6 minutes (never more) and the temp. at least on summer not more that 50-55' Celsius.

If Lipos have no memory can you explain to me why when you run them on the track the average voltage drops and IR increases then you cycle them a few times at 35 amps and the voltage goes back up and IR comes back down. If that isn't memory then tell me what it is ?
