Where is the best place to store batteries? Growing up, I was told that storing batteries in the refrigerator will ensure longer battery life. Well, this turned out to be just another old wives tale.
As of late, battery technology has changed and therefore, the refrigerator is not the best place to store them. It is best to store batteries in a dry place, preferably at room temperature. Ensure that they are not kept in a very highly heated environment or in close proximity to open flame. As long as batteries are properly stored, they are sure to last up to five years but take note of the sell-by dates.
