What is the minimum operating temperature for the MKV and 18 hour battery?


Recommended Posts



Cold temperature increases the internal resistance and diminishes the capacity. Batteries that would provide 100 percent capacity at 27°C (80°F) will typically deliver only 50 percent at –18°C (0°F).

The performance of all battery chemistries drops drastically at low temperatures. At –20°C (–4°F) most nickel-, lead- and lithium-based batteries stop functioning. Although NiCd can go down to –40°C (-40°F).


Well there is so much info on this but a Linksys router is designed for 32-104° F.

On a side note, it hit 5°F the last couple of days and my gps fired right up in my car, although the display was a little slow to refresh. Just keep your radios at 1 watt and it should keep itself warm ;)
