Re: Don't let your Lithium ion freeze

There's a switch inside all rechargeable Lithium ion batteries that shuts down the battery when the voltage gets low. We all know that if you wait a while you can power your camera back up and squeeze off a few more shots. This is not good to do because once the voltage goes too low you will no longer be able to charge that battery ever again.

This is a built in safety feature because a run down Lithium ion Rechargeable can become dangerously unstable and can explode.

If a rechargeable Lithium ion battery "freezes" that same safety feature is activated because freezing runs them down quickly.

Double A's do not share this danger, worst is they leak.

Batter technology has advanced greatly over the last few years, size and weight is improving quickly. Someone has to pay for this technology, guess who that is?

Why folks go out and purchase the newest equipment without money being a factor yet shriek at the extra battery cost?
