Temperature isn't a problem in itself really, imo.
What would be bad is if your room goes very cold overnight and is quickly warm during the day.
It's rapid changes that can cause condensation which is the worry.

With gradual temperature changes over a couple of hours, I don't see a problem.

No, not in itself.
They'll happily stand freezing temperatures.
As long as you don't use them before they have thoroughly dried out, which is where you're going to get the problem.

You are not going to be able to use any electronics shortly after freezing temperatures, as it involves ice/water.

I'm sure that part doesn't need explaining :(

Even then, ice/water will just prove to be bad for electronics, full stop.
Basically it's just not a good idea :thumbsdow
