My friend told me that if the batteries are just lying without been used then their charge goes out after few months or years. Is it true? I don’t really thinks so. But lately, my brand new digital scale is not turning on. I thought it is because of the batteries but they are just old but never been used. Is it possible that cr2032 batteries drain over time even when not in use? Please get back to me as soon as possible. I would be eagerly waiting for your replies. Thanks.
