    Never took them out.

    I always leave a fully charged one in the cam just in case I'm in a hurry to get out & dun want to grab a cam without battery
    Unless I dun intend to shoot for a long time, I'll remove the battery
    Take the shot!

    Yes! i agree wif madmartian...i will always make it a point to ensure there is enuf battery life before i store into the dry box.unless know that i will not shoot like for 1 whole month or so,then i might take the battery out just to play safe.

    Flat lithium battery for digicam not likely to leak soon.

    All others types:
    normal AA or AAA bty
    alkaline AA or AAA bty
    rechargeable AA or AAA bty
    especially button bty

    it is good habit to take out of camera or accessory before putting in dry box.

    why?
    they may leak
    you may forget about the camera/accessory after some time because you got a lot of stuff.
    the bty could be left inside for years

    it is not the bty you are saving
    it is the camera/accessory that you are saving. Once leak, the TOXIC fluid that leaks out severely corrodes your camera electronic contacts.

    DON'T touch this leaked fluid with your bare fingers.

    its just an old habit for me that i remove batteries from cameras and flash each time I am done
    in the past when we used those older button or cell batteries .... they can leak when left unused for a long long time and the leaking battery would corrode the battery contacts leading to repair job .... so its an old habit
    just a reflex action for me

    i am sure battery technology is hugely better now

    I don't take them out too, but I use my equipment quite regularly (at least several times a week for each camera). They only get taken out if it's in long-term storage of a month or more.
