Regular laptops have been designed to work within a safe temperature range ‐ normally 10 ‐ 35 degrees C.
This range refers both to optimal usage temperature of the outside environment and the temperature the
laptop should be warmed to before using. (Your life in cold environment.) Protecting laptop from cold
weather is important and you should know how to protect laptop from cold weather.
Hard drive can exist perfectly well in extremely cold temperatures in a nonoperational state. But the issue is
when it is made operational ‐‐ or spun up. That is where the window of failure opportunity exists.
We are developing one solution to protect Hard Drives against cold weather hazards.
