What make are they?, I had one unused for a bit and its voltage sagged quickly under load.
I cycled it a few times, charged and then slow low level discharge to storage voltage (3.75 to 3.8 per cell) and it bought it back to original state.

If left fully charged for long periods I have read Lipo's tend to do this.

I always leave discharged at 3.75 to 3.8 per cell now and discharge full batts to same if not going to use for a while.
