I have shot, when north of Temagami where our cabin and lots are, with hand warmers started (chemical ones), and used elastics to hold them over the battery compartment, and never had a problem.  That said, at -45 (C or F no diff), any battery is tough sledding.  That's why I use kerosene lanterns, even the propane lights don't work if there is wind with the cold.

I've lived where we had to light a fire under our #1 Kerosene tank (100 gallons) outside my house.  When you get a stretch of -40 weather for 3 or 4 weeks, even that thickens.

Cold is no stranger to me.  No problems yesterday, I had the camera with me in my backpack for 3 hours and used it about 30 times.  I still had 80% left.

That said I keep the screen in and the auto eye start off.
