I myself am struggling on the battery issue for long unused cameras. The internal battery of a camera can be depelted and died if the battery had been taken out for a long time. The consequence is system day and time reset on every power up. To some models it might even reset the customizations. On another hand, there could be a risk on battery leakage which can kill the camera. Not really sure what to do. At the time being I have keep battery inside cameras, and keep the battery charged. So far so good.

Lithiums and ni-cads have a very low probability of leaking, especially if they are just sitting there. I've never had one leak. Perhaps someone has?
