We are going to keep this blog post short and sweet. The information is very important to your rechargeable battery health and longevity. Please be sure to read this post in it's entirety.

Information/Data from Battery University shows the type of damage that can be caused to battery cells by exposing them to elevated temperatures for extended periods of time. You can also learn more general battery information by going to battery university.
