    Cold slows down any chemical reaction, including those in batteries. Warm them up again and they're fine. (When you buy packs of batteries, store the unused ones in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator, they'll keep longer.)

    ...actually, I just found that out the hard way when I left my phone in my car overnight during the recent cold spell...it used to last 3 or 4 weeks between charges, now it lasts maybe 2 days..I think it's the lithium batteries that die in the cold; alkaline batteries in my car flashlight still work fine...

    ..oh well, live and learn..kind of a cheap lesson, as it turned out, cuz a new battery was only about four bucks...

    Yes, and did you know that if your battery goes flat in the cold you can temporarily re-energise it by carefully removing the acid from it (very carefully, that stuff is really corrosive) heating it up and replacing it back into the battery?

    Thanks I was not aware of that. Being on the west coast and having my car in the garage I have never thought about it. I don't carry a phone so that is not a concern.

    Happened to me once when I had a Palm Pilot... accidentally left it in my car once, it took about an hour for it to work again

    Seems legit. My battery has been kinda crappy lately--and so has the cold.

    I was told that if I wanted to fix my battery I had to put it in the refrigerator. But I didn't trust that advice.

    Yes that is true. Be very careful jump starting a frozen battery they have been know to explode and spray acid all over the place. I'v seen it happen when i worked in a service station.

    No I didn't but my battery life is fantastic anyways, I can use it non stop for a week without charging before it dies.
