I've often wondered what the "facts" are??? I do know that back in the 
1940's when my family first became involved with hearing aids, they used 
zinc carbon batteries and those batteries had a very poor shelf life, so 
they were kept in the refrigerator. However, I'm not so sure this might be 
true today.

Good question. Hope someone comes up with the really correct answer.
