cold weather capacity for alkaline batteries

(OP)
We are reviewing the typical energy capacity of alkaline batteries at 5 degrees C vs their capacity at room temp for a pending project.  Does anyone have s source of data on the decrease of potential we can expect at the lower temperatures?

RE: cold weather capacity for alkaline batteries

Duracell and Everyready both have technical bulletins with lots of information, including temperature performance, but it's not a whole lot.  

If you can't find them, repost, and I can probably dig them up from my files...

RE: cold weather capacity for alkaline batteries

Oh, and despite some recent claims to the contrary, both Duracell and Everready had maintained that cold temperature storage reduced the self-discharge rate, which ought to be expected.
