    With your swarovski range finder, when you store it do you keep the battery in it?

    Yes. Lithium batteries have a long shelf life. My first battery lasted two seasons. I carry a fresh spare with me in the field just in case. Too much hassle to pull the battery out after each use - only to have to install it again the next time out. So I just leave it installed. I don't expect to have corrosion problems if I have to replece the battery every two years due to normal battery life.
