If you have a store function in your charger, use it.... If not, then balance charge your packs to 7.70 volts(3.85v per Cell), and store them somewhere safe, free of sunlight, heat , and away from flammable materials...

After using the Storage mode on my charger, I store my batteries in a Military Ammo Can.

Store them somewhere safe, just in case (no pun intended)

I've had good luck with storing them at 3.85 , and putting them in a plastic bag in the freezer. They hold there capacity and ir far better than those at stored at room temp for the same period of time.
