Default EMP'S

Sorry if this is not in the correct category but recently i have put 10 dual band Chinese radios in there own faraday proof bags and sealed them with there charger, charged battery pack and a AA battery pack for my prepper stuff.

My question is would an emp affect AA batteries? are they safe out or should i bag them as well?

thanks

I have some ideas, but realize it would not be a good idea to type them out

Dry cell batteries should be protected from EMP as well, along with any other personal survival equipment

I'd bury my stuff in plastic sealed containers a few feet under the ground. EMPs can't touch that.

I just had a discussion about EMPs on my other forum and I was wondering if EMPs can affect optical media. I new the answer was no, but I wanted to verify it because this nit wit from Denmark said it would be like sticking a CD in the microwave. I was like, sure buddy. But there's this new optical media called M Disk that stores for a 1000 years. You have to have the right burner though. So I'm making like a time capsule with M disk media.
