Default Mini Pro Storage

Have a new Segway Mini Pro, with a few months of winter to go before I can use it, any advice on care of battery. Do i keep it fully charged.

Thx, Tom

Storing at about 50 percent seems best. That is the rule with LiPo batteries for RC model airplanes, anyway. Full charge or below 20 percent doesn't seem a good idea for storage. I don't plan on sweating it too much if it is still full and I don't use it for awhile.

This guy seems to know about the Mini Pro's 18650 batteries in the Segway:

I try to charge mine to around 60% +/- after a ride. Then the day of my next "big" ride I will charge it to full. If I'm going to just ride it to get the mail (0.3 miles) or some short ride, I don't charge it everytime.

If I were to store if for a winter (not a problem in Arizona) I would charge to around 50-60% and still try to ride it just a bit every month if you get a chance.

Pescador12; Thanks for sharing that video, its a good one.

We have two lithium powered electric cars (Mitsubishis) and that's what they recommend also - For long term storage 30% to 40% SOC is optimal. Only recharge to 100% just before use and don't let it sit for any longer than necessary at 100% - Especially in very hot or cold weather

It's working pretty well for us so far - One of the cars will be 5 years old this May and the battery still gets us as many miles as it did when it was new. We only fully recharge them once every 3 or 4 weeks, otherwise we try to keep them between 20% and 80% SOC
