I too keep my batteries frozen simply because I buy in bulk (some time ago I
bought 40 A-76 for 25 each) and many months may pass before I use the last
of the group.

Modern batteries, I am told, need not be frozen as the chemistry they
contain is supposed to be long lasting, in fact the dates seem to indicate
that. But, as freezing cannot damage them, I prefer to store them for away
from fluctuating temperatures.

As for Pola film, all 100 series is battery free. No harm will come to them
if frozen, in fact longevity will be extended, although I have no stats on
how much.
