I must be tempting fate because I leave batteries in my gear all the time.
Often the battery damage you see doesn't come from the item being stored with batteries in it - it's because someone hasn't put the batteries in right and reverses the polarity on one, then they leak. Or they mixed battery types.
So for future reference: do not buy gear with battery damage already.
