do you store your DSLR with the battery in it?

hi guys.. now that school has started.. i don't get to play with my D90 all that often anymore.. just wondering.. for periods when my usage is rather minimal (ie take out from dry box 1-2times a week) should i continue to just leave the battery in? or should i take the battery out when in storage?

i've always believed that battery life will just seep away more quickly if you leave it in the device.. any experienced dude out there who knows what should be done?

I do hope school teaches a bit of media competency ... searching, browsing, evaluating different information. You can exercise here in the forum, it's free :)

i just leave my battery in my D70s for ages and never use it, and it's not in the dry box all the time, i still take it out but just don't turn it on.

i don't think that will cause a problem... i leave it inside so whenever i need to grab the cam and go i need not find the battery.

Recently took out my F601 from the dry box after like 6 yrs, surprisingly the battery is still like 3/4 full :think: no problem whatsoever :sweat:

Store camera with battery inside to keep the clock, date and settings.

Mine is normally out.. but that's because it's always charging ;p

which makes me wonder why the date/time is still set correctly :dunno: (probably runs an internal tiny lithium battery, I suppose - my handphone take out 30secs only have to reset date/time already)

Sometimes I leave it in, sometimes I take it out. Works either way.
