Gopro and Phone freezing dead

Any ways to keep technology from freezing in under 20 degrees. I already put my things in a sock but after an hour of riding I have to go back to the lodge to warm them up. Any ideas would help

phone: put it in your midlayer pockets.

Unplugging is very satisfying

Keep them in the inside pocket of your jacket not outside.
Keep it close to your body as possible.

If your phone is dying at like 40% due to cold, and it's an iphone, it's a known bug in iOS 10 that they are working on, the current software update installed in diagnostic program that is supposed to figure it out so they can fix in the next one. My wife runs outside in the cold with the phone in her hand and has been having this issue, I contacted apple and they explained it. Her phone dies at 39% every time.

Who are you with that you get service on a mountain? I have Verizon, and due to the weather/cold temperatures I can't keep a charge or a signal.

This is fascinating. Last year I videoed a run with my iPhone 6 in hand and I found it shut off near the bottom. Admittedly, my hand was pretty fucking cold, too, so I didn't blame it. But, when I put it in my pocket and let it warm up, it came back up with something right around 40%. I think it happened one other time as well. It definitely has to get really cold, though. When I keep it in a jacket pocket, even an outer pocket, it doesn't die on me until the battery really runs down.

Lol.That sounds about as intelligent as: Stop using dumb snowboard. Never scorpioned on skis. Snowboard are dumb.

I use an iPhone for a lot of reasons and prefer it to an Android phone, but I don't think you are dumb or using garbage if you don't. People who get worked up about another brand of phone are some of the worst idiots out there. Don't tell me you are one of those people!
