Very hot temperatures will affect both the life of most battery types used in your V-move tug and cause the voltage level to drop off much quicker. Here is a good study on the effect of heat on battery voltage: US study of heat effect on batteries We offer and recommend optional batteries with wider operating temperature ranges and higher capacity when you are in very hot or cold climates.
If you are in a very hot climate, you should have the highest heat range tolerant battery we offer, don’t park your tug outside in the sun and charge each day in the evening or overnight when it is cooler. You may also want to request a lower amperage charger from us in high heat so the batteries don’t warm up as much.
If you are in a very cold climate, you should have the lowest heat range tolerant battery we offer, park your tug indoors and charge in the warmest area. If you opt for Lithium-ion batteries, we do offer cold-weather tolerant LI batteries.
