Default temperature damage to Li-on batteries

Need to store digital camera in the car during the hot summer New Jersey months. Can the heat damage the battery, (or the camera itself), or should I not worry? I already had to replace one battery at an expense of $60. A friend told me it died as a result of keeping the camera in the car during the winter.

What batteries hold up best to temperature extremes? I may purchase a new camera to be kept in the car, for occasional use.

Many of the HP models will run on inexpensive AA alkaline batteries. Pro's and Con's?

The operating temperature for an Olympus camera is 32 to 104 degrees F. When I lived in New Jersey, the inside temp of a car would exceed these specs. Leaving a digital camera in a car is not an adviseable storage area.
