Default Lipo storage

It's really hot here 105' at 8:00 pm so even the garage gets really hot during the day and I'm concerned that my lipos sitting in the garage for the 2 summer months might get damaged being exposed to the heat for so long ,storing inside is no longer an option ,had a lipo fire, so maybe the extra fridge? Any ideas about storing in a hot climate ?

Yeah, I've read the fridge would be good for them if you don't have a climate controlled location in your home. Just storage charge them and check them every month to make sure the voltage doesn't drop below 3.2V. Being stored for just two months you probably wont have to recharge them until you're ready to use them again, but it doesn't hurt to check on them anyway.

So you think sitting in 100 plus temp all summer might not be good? When I walk by and see all my lipos I swear some are a little puffy from the heat ,it just makes sence that if heat is bad for a lipo then storing them where they would reach that temp to the core cannot be good ,
