Do dry cells freeze?
I had heard somewhere (not here) that dry cells won't freeze. I have looked at a lot of posts on dry cells in this forum and haven't found anything one way or the other. I would find that statement suspect, as the "drycells" still use electrolyte. I have never built or used a dry cell. Thanks, Tracy.

Mine froze in January on a trip to northern New York at -4f. Thought it wouldn't, but it did. Pushed a gasket out and all of the electrolyte leaked out as it defrosted. So, YES, they do freeze.
