I just read on my snowblower that batteries had to be charged indoors.  My garage never goes below 37F.  Is that okay?  I can move it indoors, but really really don't want to.  But even more, I don't want to damage my batteries.

From the Rapid Charger Manual

Optimum Charging Temperature 32°F-104°F (0°C-40°C)


CHARGING A HOT OR COLD BATTERY PACK

If the battery pack is out of the normal temperature range, LED1 will shine red. When the battery pack cools down to approximately 135°F (57°C) or warms to more than 37°F (3°C), the charger will automatically begin charging and the 4 LEDs will sequence normally.



From the Standard Charger Manual

Optimum charging temperature  32°F-104°F (0°c-40°c)

ChargIng a hot or cold Battery Pack

if the battery pack is out of the normal temperature range, the red led will shine and the green led will go off. When the battery pack cools down to approximately 135°F (57°c) or warms to more than 37°F (3°c), the charger will automatically begin charging.

So, my 37F garage is adequate, and the charger shuts down when it is below 37F!  I got it covered twice.  Thanks much.
