Where and how should I keep my extra Batteries?

Every home needs to store extra batteries.  You would not want to have to “run out” and buy new ones every time one dies. I personally keep mine in a decorative hat box, but find “just the right place” in your home.  The following information was found at http://www.goodbuyguys.com
  • Keep batteries in original packaging when possible.
  • Do not store new and used batteries together.
  • If a battery feels warm, it should be discarded.
  • Ideally, batteries should be stored in a cool, dry place.
  • Never store batteries at temperatures over 130 degrees F.
  • Remove batteries from equipment if it is not going to be used for 30 days or more.
  • Don’t remove plastic caps from 9V batteries until it is time to use them.
  • Don’t let the terminals of stored batteries come in contact with each other.
  • Remember-Duracell Procell batteries have a 7 year shelf life!

    1. I had no idea that I was supposed to keep the batteries in their original packaging! Thx for the tip.

      We keep ours in a silverware holder in a drawer in the mud room, which is why they get unwrapped. I’ll have to make a couple changes here! 🙂
