Default Safe lipo voltage??

Hello,
I've got 5 11.1v lipo packs. I always check them with a volt meter when I'm done using them. I never run them down low enough for the esc to cut off the power. My charger carges them to 12.6 volts and I uasually run them down to about 11.2-11.4 volts and that gives me 12-25 minutes of flight depending on how I fly. I know lipos are finicky (and expensive) and I don't want to ruin them. How low can I run the voltage. I've heard 9.0 volts 9.6 volts etc. but I'm not sure? What's best for the batteries? I store them at 11.4 volts. Is that correct?

Thanks
Travis
