There are quite a few weather station kits you can buy on the net. What they have in common are the sensors, the solar panel, the charger and - most notable - a LiPo battery.
I've heard that LiPo batteries should not get too cold and not too hot otherwise they could get damaged.
I live in middle Europe where it can get as cold as -20°C and I'm wondering if a LiPo battery outside even has a chance to survive - or is able to operate. Could you please give me some advice on this?
If it's not a good idea (for whatever reason) to operate a LiPo in cold weather conditions, what are the alternatives? I thought of a lead-acid or gel battery. However, I would need a different charger too. Do you know any solar power chargers for other kinds of batteries than LiPos?
Thanks in advance
