Thanks for your question!  The most important environmental factor to consider is storage temperature. We recommend that you store your battery at temperatures below 80°F (26°C).

For storage longer than one month, we also recommend that you remove the battery from the charger so that it can self-regulate and take itself to a 30% charge, which will optimize battery life.
