We have rated batteries for 10 Years of Shelf life, and we replace batteries out Each year, they are not your typical batteries. So yes you can Keep the old as a spare and replace with a new one. its all you, till that day it dies .

My personal observation of owning vehicles over the past 1/2 century is that more perfectly good batterys are replaced than need be. 2 cases in point 2004 4runner with panasonic battery driven in cold Colorado from Dec 03 to June 11, in hot Arizona until I sold it ( mistake ) in Nov 13, 04 to 13, 9 years battery was good at time of sale. 02 Civic wifes car don't remember what brand it came with but was still ok when traded for a 13 CRV, 11 years. Maybe we just have really good luck but I think not.
They changed the way batteries are made today.

Not typical? What are they then?
Even the aircraft batteries I have been looking into don't have a 10-year shelf life.
As that is in my line of work. wish i could share more. even your AA batterys got a shelf life of a nmber of years
