Operating Temperatures Hot and Cold

Operating Temperature Limits:
           Charge: 50ºF to 113ºF
           Discharge: 50ºF to 140º

Let battery cool down to ambient temperature before charging.
During discharge and handling of batteries, do not exceed 160ºF.

Hot temps: Always remember that heat is the number one enemy of LiPo batteries. The hotter your batteries get, the shorter their lifespan will be. Never charge a battery that is still warm from usage, and never use a battery that is still warm from charging.

Cold temps: 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.

CAUTION: The battery should always be allowed to come to room-temperature before charging. Charging a hot or cold battery might delay charging or damage the battery. For best results, charge the battery at temperatures between 50º and 80ºF (10º-30ºC).
