laptop batterys contain chemicals and freezing them might get an extra bit of life out of them but i wonder if it makes them more volatile or prone to leaking/exploding

Everything I've ever read says that you're not supposed to store lithium ion batteries anywhere near freezing temps. I'd imagine that this is a pretty dangerous "tip" and only recommend it if you want to burn your house down.

Hmmm...sounds like a very un-professional post to me. A google search may have enlightened you before you posted such out-dated info.,...sorry,no offence intended,mate! The idea of freezing batteries was instigated back in the old days of Ni-Cad batteries and even then only worked for a very short period,and was at best very hit-&-miss. The risks of freezing modern batteries is risky at best and dangerous at worst. I cannot believe anyone would run the risk of liability by doing this to a customers battery...no matter what the reason.Surely no Tech would be doing this ??:eek:
