Roku Express storage temperature

I just purchased 4 Roku Express devices for use in my RV. I was wondering if it would be safe to leave them in there when the RV is in storage, where the temperature can sometimes go below freezing in the winter, or if I should remove them when needed.

You shouldn’t allow electronics to get that cold, as a general rule. Put them in individual storage bags (think Ziploc bags), then all together in a “go bag” near anything else you would grab at last minute before heading out.

You should be fine.

I have had several Roku devices sitting in my RV during the winters in the last few years. One winter even had negative F degrees when they were stored there and the RV is sitting on open lands. The devices still work.

Your mileage may vary tho. (Reads my latest Roku is in the house tho)

Re: Roku Express storage temperature

I believe 10 degrees F is about how cold you should let electronics get, and let them warm to room temperature gradually before using them.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

10 F is about right for electronics with moving parts, bearings, etc and if the temperature goes below 10 F then you should let them "heat" back up over time.

Solid construction like the Roku device should not matter much below 10 F. But you should still let it get back to regular temperatures before using it, instead of using it instantly.

Disclaimer: Maybe, the Roku with the fan will be in troubles.

You've probably already thought of this, but you should remove the batteries from the remote.
