Winter storage for your Lithium Batteries...

Has anyone ran any test for capacity of Li-po after being stored for a while
The link below indicates low tempatures and discharge to 40% for storage (I'm thinking winter months) Perhaps we should be placing them in coolers after a day of flying.

I allow the temperature in my workshop to soar pretty high when I'm not in there.
When I read the subject of this post, I was thinking of safety, not capacity. I store my Lipo batteries in a metal containment box. I've seen too many of them going off after sitting dormant for a while, there just doesn't seem to be any indication that they're heading for a meltdown and then poof! I'm not taking any chances....
Anyone reading this, please do consider storing your Lipol batteries in a metal box (an ammo box is perfect) well away from anything flammable. My box sits on an old lab firedoor I use for a workbench, well away from the wall and shelves containing paints etc.
