Emergency Battery Storage


emergency battery storage for preppers

Mini Preppers store batteries.  You need them for your flashlights, radios, lanterns, etc.  You should also store batteries for your smoke detectors and remote controls.
Write down all the batteries that you need for your emergency equipment, and make sure that you have a good supply of them.
The most common batteries lanterns and flashlights are C and D batteries.  Small flashlights, headlamps and remote controls use AA and AAA batteries.
Fire alarms usually use AA batteries.  Some remotes use extra small batteries.  Keep a list of the batteries you need, and watch for coupons and sales.

One place to buy batteries at a good price is Costco.  You can buy more of them for less, and they will have a longer stale date.


Store them in a cool and dry place.


Most batteries have a shelf life of about 5 years, so you do need to rotate them.  Most people change their batteries for their smoke alarms when the time changes or at the beginning of the year.  Pick a date, and check them at least once a year.


Do not leave batteries in your radios, lanterns, or other emergency equipment that you are not using on a regular basis.  The chemicals in batteries will leak out after a few years.  They will corrode and ruin your devices.
