How To Store Lithium Batteries For A Long Time
- Jul 28, 2018 -

Lithium batteries have a relatively high self-discharge, which is related to the voltage (the amount of charge, that is, the saturation state of charge). They should be filled with a certain amount of electricity before stored for a long time. Remaining electricity and storage temperature will affect the capacity of lithium batteries.

25oC96%80%
40oC85%65%
60oC75%60%


It can be seen that higher storage temperatures result in larger self discharge. Therefore, it is not recommended lithium ion batteries be stored over a long period of time. If necessary, you are advised to store them at temperatures lower than 15 degrees when the battery power is about 40%.
