Re: Electronics that stop working when cold
said by Subaru:All batteries have internal resistance which goes up as temperature goes down. Above chart is for rechargeable batteries but gives you an idea of what happens to the power output below some threshold temperature.
with new batteries ... will not come on until it's warmed up above 20-26 F
said by Subaru:Chips (digital or analog) are really a whole bunch of circuit elements. The behavior of each of those elements depends on temperature.
I know most chips have operating limits as far as temperature but why?
