    The problem with wireless mice / keyboards

    I was going to go the wireless route (RF) for my keyboard and mouse with a Gyration combo. However, I realised that since I live in a cold climate that regular batteries will not work right in the winter months! Has anyone else considered this? I think that anytime it gets below freezing the small batteries will stop working...

    I ended up with a USB solution for both keyboard and mouse.

    Build your carputer around an Athlon, it'll keep the inside of your car nice and warm for hours after you park.

    Will not stop working, but they will lose juce fast, either take the keyoard/mouse with you when leaving the car or build an insolated box tokeep them in it overnight.
