Does Heat Ruin Batteries?

Could keeping a battery that goes to a battery-operated vehicle in our shed ruin it due to the high heat? The vehicle just stopped working one day and the battery says it was fully charged. Could the charger also have been affected?

Heat isn't the problem. It could be the charger or a weak battery. Also some say that where you PUT the battery will affect it. Storing it on wood, concrete, etc. I don't really believe that, but some swear by it.

Check out this link:

This is from AAA in the Southwest ( Arizona) and it basically states that intense heat does make a difference--changes the chemical composition inside the battery.

We lived in the Northeast for a long time and then got a rude awakening when we saw this firsthand our first record-breaking summer heat in South Florida--having to replace a car battery with only a year on it and a couple of batteries my husband had stored in the shed for some hand held power tools.


Since then, we've parked the car in as much shade as possible and store other batteries in the house in our utility room--not in the shed where it regularly gets up to and over 100+ degrees.
