Introducing the VIFLY StoreSafe, the smart lipo battery discharger that intelligently discharges your battery to the perfect storage voltage. With a built-in advanced algorithm and a temperature sensor, the StoreSafe ensures the highest discharge rate in an appropriate temperature range, while a heatsink effectively dissipates heat to prevent overheating.
The StoreSafe is compatible with 2S to 6S batteries and automatically identifies the battery type, making it incredibly easy to use. Simply plug in your battery and the StoreSafe will do the rest, discharging your battery to the perfect storage voltage (3.85V±0.08V / cell) and then going into an ultra-low leakage current, so you can leave it alone without worrying about over-discharging your battery.
In addition to its intelligent discharge capabilities, the StoreSafe is also incredibly lightweight and compact, making it easy to take with you on the go. With a working voltage of 7.9 – 26V(2S-6S) and a discharging power of 1W, it’s the perfect solution for maintaining your lipo batteries and ensuring their longevity. So don’t wait any longer, grab your VIFLY StoreSafe today and keep your batteries in perfect condition!
Before using StoreSafe, please make sure that the voltage of each battery cell is higher than 3.95V. After plugging in the battery, the LED that indicates the status will flash for about 5 seconds and then enter the discharging state. If the LED status does not indicate correctly, please disconnect the battery immediately. The StoreSafe will stop discharging when your battery reaches storage voltage (3.85V±0.08V / cell) and then goes into an ultra-low leakage current (<10uA)

Why is it important to discharge Lipos when storing them (set them to storage voltage)
When storing LiPo batteries, it is important to discharge them to the storage voltage, which is typically between 3.7-3.8V per cell. This is because LiPo batteries can degrade and become damaged if they are stored at full charge for an extended period of time. High voltage can cause the battery to puff, which is a sign of internal damage and can lead to a decrease in performance and capacity. Additionally, if the voltage is too high, it can cause the battery to become unstable and even potentially catch fire. By discharging the LiPo battery to storage voltage, it is less likely to degrade and have a longer life.
Why storing at full charge damages your Lipo Cells
LiPo batteries can get damaged when stored at full voltage for an extended period of time because of the chemical reactions that occur inside the battery. The lithium ions inside the battery are constantly moving between the anode and cathode during discharge and charge cycles. When a LiPo battery is stored at full voltage, the lithium ions can continue to move to the anode and become trapped there. This can cause the anode to expand and puff, which is a sign of internal damage and can lead to a decrease in performance and capacity. Additionally, the trapped lithium ions can cause an increase in pressure inside the battery, which can lead to a decrease in the overall health of the battery and even potentially cause a fire.
Another reason why LiPo batteries can get damaged when stored at full voltage is that they can self-discharge over time. LiPo batteries have a self-discharge rate of about 2-3% per month at room temperature. When the battery is stored at full voltage, the self-discharge rate is much higher and can cause the voltage to drop below the safe storage voltage. This can cause a loss of capacity and performance, which can lead to a shorter life of the battery.
Furthermore, leaving the battery at high voltage for a long time can cause a phenomenon called voltage depression, which refers to the decrease in voltage that happens when a LiPo battery sits at full charge for an extended period of time. This can cause a decrease in the overall performance of the battery and shorten its lifespan.
