Re: USB and cold weather


A silicone grease can be useful to prevent corrosion of contacts, and if you're plugging and unplugging them a lot or they get jiggled in their sockets it will help reduce wear.  I use it all over outdoor contacts that are exposed to the elements.  I haven't ever used them on a USB connector because I wouldn't expect a USB connector to be exposed to elements.

Regarding download times for a 47M image file, that should be about 1 second on a USB 2 interface.
