The batteries depend on an internal chemical reaction to produce energy. Chemical reactions are accelerated by high temperatures and retarded by low temperatures. The recommended storage conditions are 10 ° C (50 ° F) at 25 ° C (77 ° F) with a relative humidity not greater than 65 percent. Battery cooling is also unnecessary.
The following storage procedures are recommended to ensure the maximum power of the battery:
a. Rotation of stored inventory. Ensure that your customer receives the latest possible product by maintaining a “first-in-first-out” inventory rotation technique
b. Avoid storage in high temperature areas. Ensure that batteries are stored away from radiators, hot air fans, motors, and equipment that generate heat. Do not store batteries near windows where the heat of sunlight can heat them.
