Lead Acid batteries realy dont like the cold

The weather hear in Sydney has really cooled down in the last week or so. The night temperature dropped to about 11 last night and the daytime high was 16.

I am only getting about 25km before the battery pack stars sagging to 500V under load. The battery pack is 600v nominal and fully charged is 665 volts.

On a warm day (25+) I can get nearer 35-40km.

Temps are in C.
