Hi there! It seems that this topic comes up again here and there.
So what is your opinion on this - for how long a fully charged LiPo battery should be kept this way?
I’ve heard some ppl / sources saying only like up to 2-3 days… when some, mention that a month is also okay and nothing to worry about…
I understand that this is a topic which is pretty hard, almost impossible to be verified on your own - whenever keeping LiPo’s fully charged has any effect on their cycle life - but I wanted to hear the opinions and perhaps some others sources you have come up with!
Im not sure how much does info related to Li-ions, for some reason I believe they are not as suspectible to this… but, perhaps, also should not be kept at full voltage for over a year…
Hence - the reason why cells are shipped with low voltage… both for longevity and safety (less energy in them).
A bit background info from a guy who seems to be dealing with LiPo’s for a long time:
It is understandable that some of these guys use smaller size batteries… but non the less, I think this is pretty ‘‘chemistry related’’ so yeah, I wonder how it really is… have not heard it mentioned much on this forum, honestly… that one should not keep their battery charged at full all the time
