I keep mine unplugged from the decoy and in a cool place. Heat will drain a battery just as fast as extreme cold. I wouldn't imagine a quick, 10 minute charge, wouldn't hurt them. But, then you come into the area of wearing the battery out by charging it many times. Batteries do have a useage life and do get a charge "memory". I keep my batteries in a fridge when not in use. That was the prescribed/directed method of our batteries when I was in the military. That was regular batteries and lithium's for the NVG's as well.

i wouldn't worry about charging it when not in use. just keep it off of concrete and charge it the night before you need. follow hunt's advice about room temp storage and you should get plenty of use out of it.

Sounds good then. It's been sitting on my bedroom dresser since the end of January. Thanks guys. Would you guys happen to know what the life of one of those batteries is. I'm kinda kicking myself in the butt for buying it at the very end of the season, and having the battery a whole extra year without using it. I'm young though and just couldn't wait. I put it all together as soon as I got it home! :mrgreen:
