This just came up on the Amazon board in relation to having the Kindle out in the cold. From the user's manual, here are the operating temperatures:Marci said:I second Leslie's suggestion.
I have a question that's related to this one. Does heat/cold affect the Kindle at all outdoors? I know most electronics should not be out in direct sunlight or in the cold for long periods of time. Anyone have an idea or experiences?
I travel alone a lot and so I don't' have anyone to do sentry duty on a beach, but Leslie's suggestion is good. I take my electronics and bury them in drawer under clothes when I'm at the beach and have never had a problem. Most of the time I have my Kindle with me in my purse or back pack when I'm on vacation.Leslie said:Anytime I have gone to the beach where I have had something of value with me (and that includes car keys), there is always one person doing sentry duty under the umbrella. We take turns and not everyone is in the water together. It works.
