Transmitter storage

"I didn't use all my transmitters, can I use them next year?"

Yes, and maybe no.

Primarily, it is a matter of which battery is used in your transmitters.

If you have smaller transmitters with the 1.5V Silver Oxide battery, then we suggest that the transmitters are fitted, (a) within 90 days for the larger ones, and (b) the smaller ones (<500mg) within 30 days. 

The larger 3V+ Lithium based battery transmitters, yes they do store much better. You can expect to have most if not all of the available battery life after a reasonable storage period. Within reason, and maybe it is an idea to downgrade the expectations of battery life if they have been stored for a while.

Transmitters when stored, ensure that they have been turned OFF securely, and kept separated so that the adjacent magnet does not inadvertently turn ON the adjacent transmitter.

It is a good Idea to maybe test the transmitters for a couple of days, make sure they are still sounding strong.

Basically there is no real formula for transmitter life after having been stored for long periods.
