Not really, except for the possibility of it freezing IF the charge goes
low enough and IF the temperature goes low enough. In side is likely to be
cleaner which is a plus but if you have small children or who might get to
it, .... I would keep it in the garage, which is what I do with my MC
The real difference is that any battery of this type left stored will
slowly discharge over time. And starting batteries last longest when
discharged the least. If you want the battery to last, keep it on a
battery tender so it will remain fully charged during the months it's
I agree. The only real problems with leaving them in an unheated area
1. If they are not kept charged, they can freeze (charged batter acid has
a much lower freeze point) and freezing is bad.
2. If you have them in an unheated area, you are less likely to keep them
The cold by itself does not really hurt the battery any more than it hurts
you car battery. But your car battery is kept charged when you drive.
