#1 Looking after your battery

Don't use a damp or wet battery in your tools and avoid using them in extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold). 

#2 Storing your battery

Take your battery out of the tool you have used it in and store it separately in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight and ideally in some packaging, such as cardboard, to protect it, at a temperature between -10°C and 50°C. Don't forget to keep it out of reach of children.
