You are absolutely right, John.

You will need a Lipo Voltage alarm.

I like this one because its LOUD and the voltage alarm level is programmable from 2.9V/Cell all the way up to 3.8V/cell.

I usually set mine to 3.5V/Cell, and the rebound voltage after unplugging is 3.8V/Cell, which is perfect for storage mode.

For Nano-tech's, I set the alarm for 3.6V/cell because it has a lower rebound level. (Even though the alarm voltage is set higher, the Nano's give the same or better run time than regular Lipo's). If I run Nano's to 3.5V/Cell, they rebound to 3.7 after unplugging. 3.6V gets them to 3.8 after unplugging.
