Used your link, very interesting information at that site. Thank you. Seems to mean that in a arctic climate like we enjoy here in the winter, and electric car or scooter would be a bad idea. I guess that camping out in winter requires you to take real care of your batteries.

I'll try to be more careful to bring in my phone and player.
