I recently purchased the SP version of the 21" mower and also a blower.  Is it ok to store the batteries in between mowing, in the garage, which gets very hot in the summer?  I was just wondering if that would have any ill effects on battery life or safety?

Thanks.

Hi Mike, it depends on how hot your garage gets.  You're most like going to be just fine.  Try to keep the batteries out of the direct sunlight and under 104°F (40° C).
