So my location has recently been plagued with power outages and I dread the day that we will lose power for long periods of time (days to weeks).
I was thinking that if I was to stock up on eneloops to provide power for my flashlights and portable fans I would at least have some power.
Now if I invest on a 100 of those cells and store them until needed, how long would they last if left unused/sparingly used?
I've read that NiMH cell can only serve 5-10 years with regular use until they completely deteriorate. Is there any truth to this? I do plan to top them off every month and refresh once of twice a year.
