Should batteries be discarded when they pass their expiry date?

These expiry dates are very conservative estimates that were set by the manufacturers so their useful life should go on for a while past this date. Their capacity will start to diminish around that time to the extent depending on how well they have been stored. It is good to test batteries that have passed their expiry date to see the extent of the possible loss of electrical capacity.
