Not that I'm aware of, since it would be difficult to put an expiration date on batteries. Environmental factors play a huge role in that sort of thing. Store them in a hot and humid place, they will not last nearly as long as if they are in a cool dry location.
Seems like at least for the AA-D type batteries, the manufacturers already put that info on the packaging. Whether or not they're required by some law to do this I don't know. Regardless, it's just an estimate of how long the average battery should last if stored in ideal conditions, so basically meaningless.
Unsure if this is the correct, place for this query, apologies if not.
I've got something thats bothering me, and I cannot find any confirmation anywhere that tells me.
Does anyone know if there is some legislation that requires a manufacturer to enclose a manufacture date, or an expiration date on batteries? I'm talking about all batteries here, from AA's through to UPS batteries etc, etc.
Any help would be greatly, GREATLY appreciated!
