What is the best way to store batteries?
How long would you estimate they will hold a charge? Currently I pack them in an ammo box with some silica packets to keep them dry. The ammo box stays in a cold storage room so it remains fairly cool.
Any other suggestions?
How do you guys store your disposable batteries? I'm talking double A, triple A, Size C, D, CR123, etc... I'm thinking of putting them in mason jars in case they start leaking. And maybe I should buy a few new ones every year and rotate them out by using the old first?
I was just down doing an inventory of what I have and what I need, and saw that some of my stored batteries are becoming rusty and all in all not pretty :( So fellow preppers how do you store your batteries??? Thanks
I seem to recall having read somewhere that I should not use rechargeable batteries in my LED Maglites (AA and D Cell models). However, I cannot find such a warning in the instruction manual or on the website.
Is it okay to use rechargeables or not?
Thanks for any information.
