The time batteries are left at full charge is culmative, therefore, leave at full charge as little as practical. Storing batteries at full charge causes the battery to not only lose it's C-rate, but also it's capacity. A battery left at full charge for 1 year at 25C loses 20% of its capacity vs a 4% loss if stored at 25C and 40% charged.
