Your not supposed to discharge them? I was going to cycle the pack before I use it.

yes discharging a lipo is bad. the only safe way to "discharge it" is to run it. charge and balance.

It's not bad, it's just not needed. Li-Po's aren't like NimH cells. Just charge and go. If you only use half the pack then just charge back up and go.
