An obvious solution is to keep a small supply of batteries at home to prevent finding yourself in such situations. That is why we have put together a few tips for you below on how to properly store batteries:
- Store your batteries and rechargeables in cool and dry places (best at approx. 20°C)
- Extreme temperature changes can have a potential negative impact on battery life.
- Batteries exposed to extremely cold temperatures are unable to supply much power if used right away, but will work afterwards again after worming up. (if less than -10°C)
- A practical tip is to store batteries and rechargeables in their original packaging.
