Traveling with LiPos

Greetings, rcgroup members,
I have an upcoming trip to the mountains and wanted to do some fpv flying with the TBS Discovery. I was concerned whether I should travel to the location with fully charged packs stored in the backpack or charge them on the way there in the car charger. I've fully cycled the batteries 2 times with fully charging them and draining them until storage voltage so I think the batteries are in great condition as they do hold the capacity they claim.

Let me know what you guys think on this.

I probably think there are other threads out there on this so sorry

my suggestion:
charge them before the trip
self-discharge rate of lipos is extreamly low
