For storage...are you guys keeping them (batteries) in or out...instructions say NO...but I wanted to see what other users are doing. Battery stays in work PEQ 15, so should be this to go right?

I've had so many electronic gizmos get damaged from leaky batteries over the past year, that I keep them out for that reason alone.

There are two kinds of batteries, those that have leaked and those that WILL leak!

Please define "fixed."

Rate of drain has been reduce?

Rate of drain zero?

I keep batteries out of all high end electronic devices including NV when not in use for prolonged usage especially in hot weather. Batts can and have leaked along with bursts. Hope this helps.

What would you call prolonged.. a week? a month?

I rarely take mine out of the DBAL, or NVD strictly because I use mine about every other day, and its usually when I hear something stirring among the animals outside. So trying to get that difficult cap back on and still make it out in time to save chickens or baby goats from predators is not functional.

I am conscious of taking them out when they won't be used for long periods, but I've just rarely had a period where I thought I wouldn't probably use them within 48 hours. So basically I'm at the mercy of batteries I suppose, but I try to buy higher end batteries.

I documented the battery drain issue on my DBAL-I2 after receiving it back from LDI to fix the battery drain issue that my unit had. I posted my findings in this thread, towards the end http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_3_20/558927_.html
