Default Noob ?'s

Hello, I just bought the Hyperion EOS0606i AC/DC Balance Charger, and the Lipo 5000HV 3S 11.1V Pack. I read through the setup sheet on the charger. I set the cells to 3S, and the mAh to 5000. When the battery charged the LCD showed it reached 2400 and then said the charge was finished. Is this suppose to happen? I ran the pack for about three minutes real easy. Now do I have to manually discharge the pack, if so what settings do I need to use, or should I just recharge the pack again?

Basic Rule of thumb is that if they are going to sit store them at half of thier rated capacity. Then yes cycle them at least once every 30 days. This will ensure that they stay in peak shape.
