SSK article : http://www.cypres-usa.com/cyp16.htm

states "When stored as instructed the batteries have a long shelf life; the two year period does not start until they are installed. "

Newer is better, but Airtec says that the battery pack has a three-year shelf life before installation, so batteries made in 07 should be okay to install for another year.
