This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Battery storage suggestion
I suggested this on another thread, but I'd like to post it as a full blown idea. I think that EGO should put a storage mode switch or button onto the batteries so that way when a battery is charged fully, there isn't a 30 day delay before it goes into sleep mode, for that is 30 days for the battery to lose charge capacity, and somebody who works with RC airplanes talked about loss of capacity on this forum, though I do not remember which thread. In any case, I know that Toro had a switch on its 48V chargers and I think that having the switch on the batteries would be more effective and it would extend the lifetime of the batteries pretty significantly. Of course have it be something somewhere that will not be accidentally bumped.
