Hi all. I purchased a new EGO battery as a spare (Price was right). Not intending to use it until my current battery is kaput (3 yr warranty....and I just finished up my 1st season with it). Do I need to recharge the spare battery periodically for the 3 yrs?....or just store it (a la in a Dealer's warehouse)?

Your battery warranty starts the day you buy the battery so it makes no sense to let it languish on a shelf. If you wait for the first one to fail you could be past your 3 year warranty period on the spare. Put it into the rotation with the other battery.
