Hyperion High Voltage Lipo Questions

Hey guys, I just received my first ever high voltage lipo with a set of headplays that I ordered, and had a few quick questions.

1. What is the recommended storage voltage for this particular lipo. I always store my lipos between 3.8-3.85 via my icharger 306b. Do I just add .1 volts and store it at 3.9-3.95?

2. Supposedly I can charge this lipo up to 4.35 volts per cell to get it's maximum capacity of 1300 mah, can that setting be tweaked in my icharger 306b?

3. Finally, as a rule of thumb, I don't drain my normal lipos beyond 3.7 resting volts, so is it a good idea not to drain the hyperion beyond it's 3.8 nominal voltage?

Thanks in advance guys, and the battery is pictured below

My experience based upon my testing thus far:

1. Storage range is the same for 'standard' lipolys. (e.g. - ~3.70-3.90 volts/cell)

2. You can adjust the LiPo termination voltage on your 306B up to 4.30 volts/cell.

3. Voltage at 'knee of curve' for Hyperion LiHV is same as 'standard' 4.20V lipolys. Thus, 3.70V resting discharge termination is appropriate.
