It is safe to leave your lithium batteries on charge over long periods of time, but in the case of outdoor usage, you may want to store them away for the winter months. Always top off the charge prior to storage, then chose a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. 5 to 25 degrees Celsius, or 41 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal. Lithium batteries will maintain their charge for months at a time, so when season ramps back up there is no need to top the batteries off again before using.
