    Wonder if anyone has any experience or opinions they'd be willing to

    Heavily into photography, use lots of nimh's. Found some on sale at
    a fantastic price a couple of weeks age. Smart charger (110/220/12)
    packaged with 4 2600 aa's, and 4 1000 aaa's.

    Good enough deal that I bought lots, for myself, family, and friends.

    Bad news is that family and friends did too; now we have way more than
    we could possibly use for the next few years.

    Question then, is: How should I (we) store the unused ones for long
    term storage? They're virtually discharged as shipped. Should I just
    leave them still sealed up at room temperature, or in the fridge, or
    perhaps even in the freezer. We need as long a shelf life as we can
    get :)

    Appreciate suggestions, and take care.

    Great, thanks very much. I appreciate it!

    Looks like all we have to do is toss them in a drawer, and forget about
    them until we need them :)

    Take care.

    dont store charged ones casually, if they short out they WILL burn your home
    to the ground!
  5. I believe you're thinking of lithium-ion batteries, unless theres been some
    problems with nimh batteries that I'm unaware of.
