Getting Cold

So it seems summer is struggling to hang around. It is 55 degrees right now and I know when the battery temp gets to 40 the MINI E will not recharge. I took a look at the batteries and they are at a cool 70 and recharging fine, in fact, since the weather is cooler and less humid I'm back to easy 110 charging.

This AM the weather was low 60s and the batteries never went above 71 while driving nor did they go below 70. I'm guessing the MINI E will try not to let the battery pack get below 70. I see it maintaining that minimum temp when I'm plugged in, charging or not. I wonder if unplugged and dormant will the batteries maintain that temp?

Anyone else notice lower temps on their MINI E battery pack?
