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 your 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 for 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.


Costco is a good place to buy batteries.  They are well priced and are newer (with a good expiration date.)  Always check the expiration date on batteries when you buy them.  
Most batteries have a shelf life of about 5 years.

If you want your batteries to last, be sure and store them in a cool and dry place.  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. The batteries will corrode and ruin your devices.
