A similar question was asked about the Cybook at Baen's Bar (E-Book Reader, First Time in Conference thread). Since I can't work out how to link to it from their "improved" forum viewer (which is terrible - I may give up participating at Baen's Bar because it is so bad), here is the reply post by delphidb:

Here's Laurent Picard's (Bookeen) response:

Hi Derek,

The display operating temperature range is 0..50 C (32..122 F).
The display storage temperature range is -25..70 C (-13..158 F).
This is a significantly better than standard LCD screens.
The battery charging temperature range is 0..40 C (32..104 F).
Below 41 F, batteries can present a shorter operating lifetime.

In a nutshell, though it can run outside this range, the recommended operating temperature range is 5..35 C (41..95 F).

I have personally used my Cybook last summer in the mountainside, under direct sunlight, with temperatures above 100 F over few days and it ran just fine.

Regards,

Laurent
I assume the screen specs will apply to all Vizplex screens, but the battery specs may be Cybook (or PVI reference design) specific.
