Cold Weather Battery Test

The battery is rated to -10c. Today I rode in -1c to about 10c, it was windy so it's difficult to estimate exactly the range difference in cold weather vs hot. I will give a rough estimate of 75% or better of the maximum range in cold weather. I don't know if I want to ride in -10c, 0c is tough enough with a head wind.

    Now bad cold weather performance. I don’t blame you for not wanting to ride in it. It gets to the point where it is uncomfortable and no longer fun.

      Ayup, but I gotta know the range in the upper teens.

        It’s a bitch riding in that. Especially with a stiff breeze.

          yeah, I’m mostly worried about frost bite on my cheeks, I can manage just about everything else. Either I have an air gap below my glasses or I fog & I fog in goggles.

            I understand that. Same issue we have in work with goggle. Can’t you get vented ones?

              looking at some, it’s a new problem for me. I’m a downhill skier, I try to lock my eyes in & touch the goggles as rarely as possible. When cycling I just bleed heat from everywhere. The battery is good down to 15F & up to 110F. I’ve ridden it in over 100F this Summer & found about the same loss of range maybe a little less, but not much. I’ll try to ride it in 20F this Winter, I don’t need to go any colder. I still have to work out a 100 mile day, but that’ll wait til the Spring I think.

    The radio seems much better in terms of listening and voice quality in the cold weather. The hot weather does not provide the best radio voice. Our uk essays reviews writers are experts in telecom signalling and radio frequency thesis, contact them soon to get good marks.
