    No matter what anybody says, I still think the plastic 8500 or 8500 X50 will fail in the extreme hot or cold but not with the magnesium Valentine One IMHO.

    It's a commercial device with off the shelf components. So anything outside +32 deg F to +158 deg F is out of range unless it's tested beyond that range.

    The V1 is rated in extended commercial temp range. -20 deg F to +158 deg F.

    I don't think it has anything to do with the enclosure material.

    Do we really need to start the debates over which detector is the best? Bel and escort for city----V1 for highways

    Veil said it best
    "Think of the Bel as a high-performance sports car that can act as daily driver. Vehicles such as a late model Corvette or Porsche 911 with SMG come to mind."

    "Think of Escort as a nice Grand Tourer (GT) of the three - an automatic E-class from Mercedes-Benz or 5 Series"

    "Think of the Valentine as the pure race-car of the bunch - such as a Ferrari F40. It has awesome capability, but (this current version) may be a bit fatiguing to take on long-trips"

    Spoiler: show

    I dont think plastic or what it is held in really has anyhting ot do with it. If it is out in the cold, the circuitry will be exposed to the cold
