Although this won't hurt anything, Lithium Ion batteries are different
then NiCad batteries, so they don't benefit from being stored in such a
cold place. Shallow charges are good, and they should be topped off
before going into storage. Heat should also be avoided, but like I said,
refrigeration isn't beneficial.
