Though they're not welcomed, vented cells (light, not heavy) will perform just great.

Here are a couple of ways to prevent venting ...

Of course, make sure you are using proper charge settings (6-7A, 5-7mV/cell cutoff)
Also, make sure you put sufficient amount of charge back in the pack before resting it away (from discharged status, 1500mAh is how much I put back).

you will get a lower "peak" shutoff. so you may be robbing yourself of 30 or 45 seconds runtime. and in the long run, your packs will last longer !!

You won't get the pack peaking at the ideal temperature ... you need to look for 125-130F at end of initial peak (not re-peak).
