    I store mine without batts in my dry cabinet. Even the batts are inside the dry cabinet.

    No problem too. But I usually keep an eyes on the bat's 'expiry date' if alkaline.

    Too troublesome to remove the battery, unless I will prepare for not using it for long time.

    Arto.

    I open mine too everyday but won't so easy spoil, unless it's abused.
