I have recently bought a battery powered LED lamp for use on a camping trip.

When I return I would like to have it ready for use at home when the power goes out.

I am concerned that as it will be unused for long periods of time the batteries may leak and ruin the lamp.

How can I store batteries in/with an inactive device for an extended period without them leaking?

An ideal solution will allow for a simple and safe procedure to activate the lamp, it will need to be performed in the dark.

I have considered storing them loose on the shelf adjacent to the lamp but am concerned that they may:

  1. become separated or misplaced,

  2. short out (against each other or other tools on the same shelf)
