Wonkee Donkee's tip for taking care of your battery WONKEE DONKEE  has the following tips to care for your rechargeable batteries:

Storage

angry battery next to a radiator Over time, the internal parts of batteries naturally deteriorate. Heat speeds up this process, so a hot battery is not a happy one!

When not in use, keep the battery in a place that’s dry and cool. Don’t leave it in direct sunlight or near a radiator!

Battery with labelled contacts Store your battery in a cool dry place that is free from dust and make sure that the contacts do not touch anything metal or the battery could overheat and cause a fire.

Most come with a protective cover for the battery contacts.

Charging

Some people, when they know the battery is almost empty, will hold the speed control trigger in until the battery is completely drained and the tool stops running. This is known as deep drainage and can actually damage the battery and shorten its overall life.

All batteries need a little bit of life left in them to re-energise when you recharge them. Recharge the battery when the tool starts to slow down.
