Hello,

I fully charged my batteries about 3 weeks ago because I was planning on flying, however due to weather I wasn't able to fly so I left my batteries in my case thinking they would discharge themselves after 10 days. Well today I opened my case to check on the batteries and they still charged up to the third LED.  Is this normal or did I do something wrong?

That's normal, they only discharge down to 60%

So, I guess storing the battery at about 40% is not correct?  What voltage should the battery be stored in?

Depends how long you plan on storing it probably, if short term it's unlikely to matter, if long term I'd go with the recommended 60% personally.  Whatever voltage it's at when its at 60% charge I'd say.

Hi ,mc15601
Please discharge the battery to 30%-50% if it will not be used in 7days or more . The battery automatically discharges to below 65% when it's idle for more than 10 days .
