Cold Temperature Effects on Battery Capacity

31 Jan 2020

As calculated based on the specifications of the cells in the batteries of our products, overall capacity can potentially decrease by about 25 percent in cold temperatures. This will vary and is dependent on exact operating temperatures.

Some examples, for the Allegro 2 based on product model specifications, at such extremely low temperatures the operation time could potentially decrease from up to 20 hours to only up to 15 hours instead. Or for the Mesa 2, at extreme temps that could potentially decrease operation time from 8–10 hours (or 12–15 hours with optional additional internal battery) to 6–7.5 hours (or 9–11.25 hours).

Make sure that you are charging in a heated location. See the user manual for charging temperature range.
