Indefinite shelf life, but I would always remove the batteries when stored as well. Also, with that said, ITT also recommends powering up the unit once a month or so to (for 5-10minutes) to insure there are no power surges when first powering the units after a long power off duration. This is just a precaution. Hope this helps.
