Don't Leave Your Electronics Out in the Cold

Posted: Updated:

You grab your keys and coat and backpack or brief case. And you leave your phone in the car, or your laptop, or your iPod, and it stays there over night. And when you come back in the morning, it doesn't work quite as well as it did before, if it works at all.  Electronic devices are very susceptible to cold temperatures.

iDoctor owner Kyle Stricklin says, "Your primary concern is battery. The battery can freeze and affect how long it'll hold a charge."

But it doesn't stop there.  Phones and computers can get condensation when you bring them in from the cold, just like eye glasses. That condensation can get on the circuit boards inside your device.  And because condensation is just water, that can mean short circuiting.
