To minimize this loss, they recommend storing batteries half charged in a dry, cool place between 41° and 77°F (5° and 25°C), the cooler the better. Batteries should be charged to half capacity at least once a year. In order to charge a battery to half capacity, take a fully discharged battery and charge it for two hours. If an electrolyte leakage is observed, avoid any contact with the affected area and properly dispose of the battery.
