    If it actually freezes or is left in direct sunlight for a long time many of the reagents will go bad. Ideally you want cool and dark with reasonably constant temperatures and never below freezing.

    I have to order a new one. I left mine in the garage all winter and it tends to get below freezing here in MN.
