    How to store my LiPo's for the next 4 months

    I will probably not be using my LiPo's for the next 4 months, and was wondering how I should store them? Batteries are stored inside in my home. Temperature inside where they are now, is proximately a stable 20 degrees Celsius. Do I need some special attention? Your advise is welcome!
