No need to discharge. SMC said to cycle to get heat up (better performance when cells are hot) but you can just heat them instead.

You have to be careful. I would invest in another pack or two. I don't see your packs lasting long if you continue on this path.

What is the recommended cooling off period for a lipo after a race? I picked up three lipos but was thinking while practicing, charging the first one that I just finished practicing with, but did not think about letting it cool off. I would hate to have a lipo failure at the track.
