Hello, everyone. I'm wondering if it is safe for the Torch to use it under -10C...-20C (-4F...14F) temperature conditions. To my mind it must be safe if the temperature of the Torch is approximately equal to the outside temperature which prevents condensation. What do you think?

Condensation won't hurt anything, but it will be dim because it isn't regulated and batteries don't fair well in the cold.

I would try and steer clear of using it under these conditions anyway if possible.

Thanks for your opinions. Tried it at 0 F. Works fine, at least during battery lifetime :) And you can also warm your hands as an additional bonus :)

Yeah there's no way whatsoever you would even burn your hand in the slightest.

LP, you had your shot and you blew it. Move on.

He meant while holding the housing. Or at least I thought he did.. I apologize if I was wrong.
