    Dumb ? But I swear I searched.....battery pack in bag okay?

    I got a Fluxient 4 R5 light, similar to magic shine in design. Can I carry the battery pack in my rack bag or will it overheat? It will be in the 30s tonight when I ride but can I also carry it in my bag during the summer when it is hot outside(like 95-100)? Does it need airflow like the light does or is the battery pack okay inside a bag? The bag is a small, supposed to be a top tube bento type bag but I have it on my incredibly small Casseroll front rack instead. Fits great! But bag is small, about the size of a lunchbox.
    Thanks!

    Your battery pack should be just fine in the pack. Unless there is an internal short in the battery, a lithium ion battery should not generate a significant amount of heat during normal use.
