I would only do it once every 15 cycles and discharge along with a balancer at
a slow rate. 1amp or less. Then charge them back up using 2amp along with
a balancer. I do this on rainy weekends. I have 2 Thunder V2 extremes that
have been slightly puffed and this fixed them right up.

I am sure there is a lot of ways to do it. This is what works for me. BTW I use
a Common sence rc balancer and the Mystery B6 charger..

I've read that it is a good idea to "cycle" new LiPos 4 or 5 times, down to "storage" voltage then back up to fully charged. Something about getting rid of special chemical inside to make shipping safer. Haven't heard of cycling after that. I'm fairly sure they don't get a memory like NiCd so cycling down to low is not necessary.
