accucell6 ???

Nicad, NiMH, Lithium, A123? If it's transmitter or receiver batteries you want to talk about, do it in this forum.

Sounds close enough for storage of a Lithium Polymer pack.... It's not an important voltage, you just want it around 11v for a 3 cell, or more accurately, around 3.7V per cell. Storing Lithium batteries at their full charge will hasten it's demise due to the chemistry involved.... A somewhat discharged pack reduces the wear and tear, but is still high enough to avoid the pack discharging too far while in storage, as that too is hard on Lithium Polymer packs.

The most important voltage is the max voltage when fully charged. It should never get above 4.2v per cell for Lithium Polymer packs. Going above may result in a "Vent with Flames" episode.... something you really don't want happening.

There is a calibration setup in the Accucell 6, but please use an known, accurate, volt meter when setting it up. Just buying and using a $5 multimeter made in China is no more accurate than your Accucell 6 is, and that is no way to go about re-calibrating it.

thanks for the info didn't know about 4.2 voltage will watch for that.
thanks mike
