Poweredge RAID battery.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this. You see, I've got some spare batteries, part number G3399. I know Lithium Ion batteries have a shelf life of just a few years, and my question is, where is the date code on the battery? I see a super long barcode number, but nothing to really point out either when it expires, or when it was made.

Re: Poweredge RAID battery.

These were last used on our 8th generation servers (1800, 1850. 2800, 2850); we are now at the 12th generation.  The barcode number probably contains the part number and maybe a date code. The batteries without being charged normally last 2 years on the shelf, and have been known to go as long as 5 years in a fully charged system before needing replacement.
