This is kind of half general talk and half about something vehicle-related. I bought the software and hardware interface for the L322-based all comms system from RSW solutions. The intention of purchasing this solution was to both be able to diagnose my Range Rover on my own and to also be a dedicated component of my vehicle safety kit in case of emergency. I ended up buying a cheap used netbook on eBay, and loading the allcoms system onto it for no other purpose but to have a small handy way to look at the diagnostics data and it not be bulky.
The only thing I am kind of iffy is while the whole point of this is to be able to use on the fly and to be able for it to be portable, I am kind of nervous if I leave the laptop in the car overnight with the cable and power cable even in a sealed bag, the weather where I live gets brutally cold at night. My concern is that due to the extreme temperatures the battery on the netbook might explode. Is this a valid concern? How do I keep it in the vehicle if possible and keep it from getting really cold?
