Re: [IP] battery storage question

I have always stored extra batteries in the fridge, but it looks like the
data on longevity from the Eveready website shows that--at least for
Eveready's alkaline and silver oxide type batteries--there is not much
advantage to cold storage.  LaClanche and Zinc chloride batteries loose
appreciably more over time.

see: <http://data.energizer.com>. Click on "Battery Information", then
"Temperature Effects" to see graphs of how their various types of
batteries retain their capacity over time (projected percent service

Perhaps Disetronic recommends leaving them at room temp. based on the
small differences that refrigeration makes, and the possible detrimental
effects of moisture.
