Cold Temperatures & LiPo batteries Don't MixUpdated 2 years ago

LiPo batteries and cold temps don't mix well. The discharge rating of a LiPo battery is directly affected by the temperature of the battery. When the temperature of the battery is below 50° F (10° C), you'll start to notice performance drops; significant issues start to occur when the battery gets below 20° F (-7° C). 

To use SwiftPaws in cold weather - keep the battery at room temperature and only place in drive right before you're going to run it. If you notice a decline in performance bring the the battery back indoors to warm up. 

Take extra care when attempting operate the drive in temperatures below 20° F (-7° C) and bring battery inside to warm. 

Attempting to charge a battery that has an internal temperature at or below 50° F (10° C) may permanently damage the battery due to unwanted chemical effects inside the battery due to the cold.
