Be sure to test any emergency equipment before you need it! If you're depending on something that's rechargeable, be sure to run it through a few recharge cycles before you need it, determine how long a charge will last for your typical use, keep it charged. Wikipedia has a good article here about how many recharge cycles different battery types can tolerate and how long they hold their charge when not in use. For items that require single-use batteries, like alkaline batteries, be sure to keep plenty of fresh spares on hand. Alkaline batteries typically have a shelf life of several years.
