I just got a new Hyperion Duo3 and it's storage is at 3.0Volts per cell.
Is that OK? I just thought that sounded low.

I know when my battery hits lipo cut off with my Tekin RS it is at around 3.4V per cell.

The best storage value is around 3,7-3,85V per cell

That sounds very low. Do you have the settings right?

I have the Hyperion 0606i and the "store" mode takes the cells down to around 3.9V.

I would say anything below 3.7V (the nominal voltage of the cell) is too low.

I suspect the 3.0V per cell value you are seeing is for the discharge setting.

The storage process is separate, it will go to about 3.85V per cell. (7.7V for a 2S) Charge or discharge as needed. Seems to be in the range of many if not most recommendations.

The common wisdom is basically 50-60% charge so simply charge em normally till the hit 8.0v (2s) then stop and pack away. I also use the storage mode on my charger between meets and have had awesome packs for a long time now though I think that is far more to do with the brand than storing them.
