In terms of queries about storing certain items, the number one area of concern is always electrical products. Storing them in such a way that they will work fine when they are eventually removed from storage is usually the biggest priority. With this being the case we’d like to share some general tips with you.

A good place to start is with batteries. In short, if your electrical device is powered by replaceable batteries make sure they are removed and disposed of before putting the item in storage. Should your device have a built in rechargeable battery then, as per the advice of most manufacturers, it will be best to make sure it’s fully discharged before being packed up.

Plugs are a different matter. Usually there is no reason to remove them, in particular if they have been fitted in accordance with CE and BS standards, and the item being stored has been packed correctly. It could, however, be highly beneficial to have PAT testing carried out on any appliances which have been in storage for a while before you resume using them.
