    I got ahold of a few LED keychains that each have two 1.5V button cells.
    My guess is that they are alkaline.

    I want to store these button cells for future use.

    What's the best way to store these to keep their charge?

    In the refrigerator? In the freezer?

    I keep lots of alkalines in the freezer - they last a LONG time in
    there. What was it, every 10 degress C changes the activity up or down
    by a factor of 2 so going from 25C to -10C is around 11 times slower.
    Good idea to put them in zip-loc bags to prevent condensation.

    Whats the big worry though as you can get A76 button cells from Digi-
    Key for cheap - 38 cents last time I bought some.
