I heard many years ago to store batteries in the freezer if long term storage is necessary. Is that good? How about rechargable batteries? I had some Tenergy rechargable batteries that I had charged and when I used them they were dead. They had been charged within the previous 6 months at the most. I charged them and they seem to be fine now. But for how long? I bought a few Eneloop batteries for some items because I've heard they were as good as rechargable batteries get. I have some Eneloop batteries that I haven't used. Should I just keep them until the other Eneloops quit recharging or go ahead and use them? The Eneloops are twice the price but if the others don't last they may represent wasted money. I don't need the best performance but even the cheaper batteries should work and not be dead when I need them.
Any info is appreciated.
