    I've operated mine to zero degrees Celsius. (Freezing level) Best to keep the battery warm for as long as possible before entering it into the environment.

    Owwwwwwwwe yoooowh that's cool. Let me know how that works out for you! Battery endurance will be limited.

    -18C with my V2+
    just keep battery warm.
    I do worry though about the stress cracks. Plastic gets more brittle the colder it gets!!!
