    Am planning a journey to Lapland for the Aurora Borealis. Temps can get to -30 or -40. Am concerned about being out to see Aurora and what affect (and/or damage) could happen to my CI. BTW, I have Medel brand and it's 4 years old.

    Can anyone share any experiences and whether I could have problems?

    Use beanie hat to cover your CI.

    have you had actual experience? I do use a beanie whenever I'm in "coolish" climate ... was just concerned due to extreme cold

    No I have never been in this cold. The lowest I have been in is around -10. I hope someone else can help you.

    Your best bet will probably be to contact someone at MedEl about this.
