Not leak - but swell up huge and be VERY hard to remove

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?

I've had Lithium batteries swell up huge and be very (very!) hard to remove. I wont store them in my camera for this reason.
