Default When to put a LiPo into storage?

Typically when I'm racing on a weekly basis I'll leave them sit with whatever charge they had left when they came out of the truck. My new charger has a "storage charge" feature built into it, so my only question is when to use it? If I don't plan on running in the next two weeks? A month?

ehh really its hard to tell, i have never used storage mode. i balance to 6.8-7.0V or 3.4-3.5 per cell for 2Cell. when i plan on not using it for a while, most for me was 3 weeks and i toss it back on balance charge to full before i went out again.. and it did not hurt any performance from what i can tell.

Wouldnt leave near lipo cutoff voltage as .it could wiggle its way down but these batts hold there voltage well

Storage mode sets each cell to 3.8v.
