Actually cold storage is recomended for Lipos, has to do with putting the chemistry dormant.

OK....does that apply to the cold temps of the frozen tundra here in Edmonton? -20C?

I was thinking of throwing them in one of those coolers on my deck

I'm gonna store my lipos in the freezer wrapped in 2 ziplock bags inside a military ammo box that's weather proof :)
