Default Long-Term Battery Storage

Any recommendations on storing lithium batteries so they lose minimal charge?

What about putting them in your refrigerator or freezer??

I have 4 lithium batteries for my CP5K that I probably won't be using for a long time.

take them out and put them in a dry place. no refrig necessary. dry is the key. humidity will take them down slowly. oh, put put them where you can find them of course. somethings are put away in my home and don't show up again for years

Lithiums, unlike nicads and NiMH, do not self-discharge over time. Just store them in a place where you are comfortable. If you are comfortable, so will they.
