6. Be Smart With Your Electronics
Before heading out into the cold, fully charge your batteries and devices. And keep ’em warm. Often, a battery will show it’s dead when it’s more or less stunned by the temperature.
Larsen will keep his Goal Zero Sherpa 50 power pack (for longer expeditions) in a spare jacket deep inside his backpack during the day and his sleeping bag at night. He’ll also keep spare rechargeables in his pocket during the day as he travels. “Get it under a couple layers, though,” he advises.
Larsen also recommends swapping standard AA or AAA batteries for lithium ones, as they’re lighter and perform better in lower temperatures. Also, minimize tech with LCD screens; they suck a lot of juice.
