Are we discussing storing opened batteries or storing your supply of batteries
in the fridge to increase their shelf life.

The Zinc Air chemocal reaction can be accelerated by heat, and slowed by cold.

Idealy if you are interested in reducing the speed of the reaction you 
should be stored in the freezer in a zip lock bag and taken out (in
that bag) and left to defrost. THe bag would significantly reduce conden
sation which might cause a short in the h. aid.

Interestingy enough a voltage is still detectable in a ZnO2 cell even before
the tab is removed

: understanding that they should not be stored in the refrigerator because
: moisture will clog the "air hole" on the positive side of the battery.
