Thanks for the quick responses gentlemen. I actually purchased the batteries from a place called Hobby King. They have some good reviews so I decided to give it a shot.

If the former (eg. iMax B6AC, Turnigy, etc.) there is a lipo storage charge mode set it on that. If the latter just charge it up to the top and leave it as is. I always have my batteries charged top the top (and I own an advanced smartcharger with display).
AFAIK from the factory batteries will come half charged.
BTW: If you ever need to jump start your car because of a flat battery and you have an advanced smart charger you can attach the clips to your cars battery terminals and charge on lead acid mode at 12V (probably safely at 5 Amps as well).
Great Question, I actually use a regular smart charger. Its black in colour and says "Flame" on it. I hope thats not foreshadowing on whats going to happen to my batteries lol. Was thinking of getting a smart charger with display but unsure of which one. There was also a silver regular smart charger from Tenergy that had no display that has gotten tons of great reviews by well known airs of stores.
