    LiPo USB charger question.

    Hi everyone, I recently bought a Losi mini t 2.0 brushless. It comes with a USB charger and I’m wondering what the best thing to do when not using the battery is. How do I go about making sure the correct amount of charge for storage is within the battery? Cheers, Jason.
