    Shelf life on a cellphone Battery

    I probably should ask my question in another forum, but i'll give it a try.

    What is the shelf life on a cell phone battery if any, like if the phone isn't being used will the battery be ruined.

    thanks

    for one thing, modern cell phone batteries will last longer if they are charged periodically...the reason for this is that they continue to discharge even when not in use or even in a phone, and most modern cell batteries include a safety valve of sorts that prevents them from being charged once they discharge below a certain point

    for reasons stated in my previous post, i wouldn't recommend it...if you buy a spare battery, i'd recommend rotating them out at least periodically to avoid the issues i mentioned
