Question: I sometimes want to leave my laptop or tablet in the car. Is it safe to do that when it's very cold outside?
Answer: No, it isn't safe to leave devices outside in very cold weather. That's because when a device is exposed to cold temperatures for too long, its battery will die and its LCD screen will likely start having issues. What's more, if you leave it in the cold and then bring it into a warm room quickly, you can cause condensation to build up inside the device, which has the potential for more long-term damage.
Generally speaking, bring your device inside when temperatures are below freezing. For more detailed recommendations, check your device's manual for the manufacturer's recommended temperature ranges for both operating situations (when it's turned on) and non-operating situations (when it's turned off). If you can't find the manual, look for it at manualsonline.com.
