    now that winter is here ,is there any info on how to leave the batteries ---fully charged or just leave them as they are and they discharge

    It's impossible to keep them fully charged. They will automatically start discharging to a safe storage level after no more than 10 days.

    I realize that they cannot be kept fully charged ,so just let them sit?
    I wonder how low they will go
    Also where do you get the battery firmware readout, i only see aircraft, camera and rc unit and display (ipad)

    Around 40% is a good storage capacity...

    I would NOT keep them in the fridge if only to avoid repeated condensation on the electronics.

    The batteries discharge themselves to 60% as you've seen.
