as far as those dc-dc converters shown on the hardware page they say their operating range is 0 to 55 degrees celcius has anyone tested whether or not operating at a lower temp will affect them such as say -20 degrees celcius?
just want to know so i know whether i should place in a spot that will warm up quickly in the car
I've run my DC-DC converter in the middle of a Canadian winter (well below 0) for months and never had any problems. The converter will warm up very quickly once it is turned on.
