I have always left my cell phones in the car...whether it be -30 degrees or 100 degrees.

  • Nonoperating temperature: -4° to 113° F (-20° to 45° C)
  • Relative humidity: 5% to 95% noncondensing
  • Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 feet (3000 m)

Historically high car temps have been very detrimental to the lifetime of iPod batteries. I wouldn't do it.

Yup.

Plus humidity is bad too.

I have personally had my vehicle broken into, so I wouldn't want to chance that either.

yup, it'll kill your battery. I used to keep my ipod in my glove box...now it holds a charge like my laptop..10 min max...I wouldn't recommend it.

Anyone else notice that the normal operating temperatures, and included within the range of the NON-operating temperatures? haha -4˚ to 32˚ and 95˚ to 113˚ would be more correct... also, does that make below -4 and above 113 okay? ha... kidding

They just mean you can actually use it between 32 and 95. You can safely have it off between -4 and 113. Anything outside of -4 to 113 will instantly cause it to explode and kill/mame anyone in a 20 foot radius. :)

Oh crap

I live in Tucson, AZ. and it is very normal for the temps to reach over 110 in the summer. It was 113 degrees yesterday, and 117 degrees in Phoenix. Obviously leaving my phone at home is nt an option. I hope it will be okay. Just have to remember to take it out of the car because it gets over 160 degrees in a matter of minutes in there.

Don't leave anything you love in your car during the summer. Never. Ever.:cool:
