Why is it bad? My FFE survived 3 Michigan winters sitting outside every day cold soaked in the winter. When I returned it at the end of the lease I had no noticeable battery degradation (30k miles). Two of those winters had some of the coldest weather we've had around here in a long time with many days below 0F.pcph wrote:That sounds bad. Sounds like something I should avoid at all costs. Unfortunately I don't have a better solution right now, but at least winter is over. Come next winter, I may be able to figure out something, such as interior parking.
Cold does not damage the battery, it merely makes it store less electricity--once its warmed back up its fine. Heat, on the other hand, can truly do some nasty stuff.
