1.Safely prep batteries: bag or tape. Bag each battery in its own clear plastic bag before placing it in a storage container. Tape the terminals with clear packing, non-conductive electrical or duct tape, keeping the label visible. Batteries that appear dead may contain a residual charge and can pose a fire hazard unless they are bagged or taped. Aim to recycle batteries within six months of their end of use.
2. Store batteries in a cool, dry place. Incidents can occur when batteries are exposed to inclement or excessively hot weather. Store them in a plastic container; avoid metal.
