Re: LiPO and cold winter temp

I remember the chill well now, yeah -20C and the wind had a bite to it. Lithium Ion is what I used. I just gotta have it setup so I can take the battery with...

The OP could be Canadian which means free health care. But its always wise to have extra health coverage like Blue Cross or Greenshield for an extra $50/month 8)
