All too often, stationary batteries are purchased many months before they are destined to be put into service and they are put in temporary storage. This storage can be either away from or at the installation location. Also, sometimes batteries are installed at their intended location but are not connected to the charging system. This paper will detail how batteries should be stored in such a manner that they will not degrade or suffer permanent damage. Freshening charging will be discussed and temperature, humidity and other environmental factors will be addressed. Additionally, the correct charging voltage and various compensation factors will be given. Some practical examples will be shown.
