    Correct storing of a li-ion batteries is crucial to ensuring the lifespan of the battery. This is something you need to take into consideration, especially when storing your tools over winter as Lithium-ion batteries are highly susceptible to temperature. Temperatures that are too high or too low can cause the cells to suffer permanent damage. In rare cases of batteries being stored incorrectly for long periods of time, it is even possible for the battery to become completely unusable, this is called deep discharge.Deep discharge is when the entire battery capacity is depleted. This usually happens when batteries are stored empty of charge and then discharge themselves even further. If self-discharge occurs for too long, this causes deep discharge. This results in permanent, irreversible damage to the battery. To avoid this happening and to extend the lifespan of your batteries, please read our storage tips for the winter months below.
