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.

OK. It looks as if lithium-iron-phosphate may be the L-I of choice for some camera batteries, while power tools (and electric vehicles) use a more cold resistant combination. Handy to know.
