Default battery dies fast

Once at storage charge, put them in a refrigerator at 40. I have a mini-fridge in the garage where I keep my lipos.
So this is my problem , see I have been doing this for a few years and with my airplanes the battery's held up pretty good ,but with the drone turning 4 rotors it shows up fast .,thank you
