Default Shipping lipo's in cold cold weather.

Can shipping in cold weather cause problems to lipo batteries? How cold can lipo's be shipped in un-heated trucks? And is there any cold-related procedure to follow once the batteries are received?

The temperature I'm referring to is -15 celsius and colder. Thanks in advance.

Default RE: Shipping lipo's in cold cold weather.

Nope shipping them in the cold doesn't hurt them at all. Once you get em' let them warm up to room temp and your good. During use in the cold weather they will lose capacity but it will not hurt the pack in the long run. As soon as they warm back up they are fine again.
