You know, the more you start putting all of these little "gotchas" together, the less user friendly LiPo cells appear to be. Imagine charging your LiPo cells for the last flight of the season, and then having a snowstorm hit. You store your fully charged cells away for the winter, and next spring you pull them out and they are screwed.

You really have to be willing to put up with lots of little things like this. The rewards are pretty good, and many people will be willing to put up with them. But a lot of people are programmed to think of modern products as "plug and play." LiPos aren't there yet. I have a feeling that we are going to be reading lots of messages from casual users who are having various problems with LiPos.
