    I read in another post about how putting your lipos in the fridge can really help to keep them in good condition. I now do this with my main batteries and my AA batteries but what about the stock Wifi repeater? Should it go in the fridge as well and is there an easy way to know what state of charge it is in?

    My only concern with the fridge would be condensation inside the plastic housing?

    Yeah I worry about that too. I thought about putting them in ziplock bags to prevent condensation getting on them. I keep mine at 40-50% charge in the fridge for storage.

    Anyone know how best to look after the battery in the repeater? When it should be charged and do we need to let it run down like we do with the main batteries every now and then. At the moment I tend to just recharge mine after each session of 3 batteries flying. I assume there is no way to know the charge level?

    We apply 5v to the charger inside, what type of battery is in there?
