Kari, the manual states that the battery should be removed for storage.  No reason is given, but it could be just for safety reasons since the mower can't be started accidentally without the battery installed.

If you wish to store the mower with the battery in it, there is room in the battery compartment to slide the battery in without engaging it.  Simply slide the battery in as far forward as it can go (towards the front of the mower) and it will not engage the mechanical lock or electrical connections.

This is how I store mine and I've had no issues.

Living in the Houston area it gets pretty hot in the summer so I bring my batteries inside between uses.

I would think the same would apply as any other battery operated device. I don't take my batteries out of my TV remote or my flash light just because it's not in use.

No need to remove the battery between uses, only for charging. It's only a general recommendation and is likely more safety related than anything.

Good advice, I'll try this with my battery. Right now, I'm removing it after every mow and storing it in the garage.
