Are you saying you are fully charging the batteries before putting them in storage? If so, this is not a good practice as lipos don't like to be stored fully charged. You will want to put them on storage charge, which is typically 3.8 - 3.86v per cell. If your charger does not have a storage charge function, you will need to do it manually. Once at storage charge, put them in a refrigerator at 40. I have a mini-fridge in the garage where I keep my lipos.
