Re: Don't let your Lithium ion freeze

While I don't leave photo gear in the cold, my cordless tools, most of which have L-I batteries, survive quite nicely in my normally unheated shop. Virginia isn't the coldest spot in the world, but we do spend a considerable amount of the winter below 32 degs. F.

Just for kicks, with winter coming on, I'm taking one of my Pentax K20D batteries and putting in the shop.

Years ago I purchased 2 Sony Lithium ion camcorder batteries through Amazon. They came from Abe's of Main (that's when they were still in Main). They looked new but neither one would take a charge. They sent two more, same thing, couldn't charge them. Sony replaced all 4 and picked up the bad ones.

Sony said they had been in freezing temperatures too long.
