Store batteries in a cool and dry place

Extreme heat or even cold can shorten the longevity of the battery. Never refrigerate.

Remove batteries from any device that will be stored

Many devices don’t turn off completely when not in use, so they still use a small amount of power. If a device is stored this way for an extended period of time, like months or years, the batteries can run out and corrode. Not what you want when you dig that old toy out of the closet!

Do not carry batteries loose in purses or pockets

Doing so can cause burns, or cause the batteries to explode.
