    How long does a lipo battery last ?

    What I mean is if I have a lipo battery that is rated for 500-800 charges and I only want it as a backup battery how long will this battery last? That is to say is it 500 charges forever? Like if I take an unused lithium ion battery is 5 years old and start using it will the charge be just as good as if I used it brand new? And will I still get that 500-800 cycles?

    No LiPo's like most rechargeable batteries have a set number of charge/discharge cycles and a shelf life, both of which tend to reduce the capacity of the battery until it becomes useless.
