Volt Batteries and Winter

OK all you Volt conversion peeps - What’s the verdict on winter maintenance and battery freezing?

Winter is coming quick and the GEM will go into storage,
Is it ok to let the Lipo’s freeze?
Should we keep them on the charger all winter, is there a trickle charge option for Lipo’s?

Any input would be aprecated.


Cold won’t hurt them.
Trickle charging is bad. Disconnect a battery lead and bms ,it will hold storage charge for a year.

It you don’t want to disconnect battery, check it once a month to keep it over 3.5 volts.
