Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
Lithium batteries can give off a strong energy surge after a long period of low discharge, making them ideal for fire alarms.

Battery performance greatly depends on the device and on the conditions.
There are some best cases to keep stored batteries in best shape: store them in their original packaging, never mix up different batteries and store them at room temperature or in a cool environment.
Immediately head to the nearest emergency room. Avoid drinking or eating before a doctor has provided a decent diagnosis.
