you can maybe put the Tupperware inside a portable fridge bag, so you
can save your equipment from humidity through the Tupperware and
isolated from temperatures through the fridge.
  There are soft and light models that can accomplish your purpose.
I'm not sure if using heaters could increase the level of water
condensed on the surface of the Tupperware and start ruining your
equipment with humidity.
I'm right now working on a project where I have to spend the whole day
in the freezing cold. After some issue on the first day I realized that
is better leaving the equipment out in the cold in the morning as soon
as I arrive on location to leave all the electronics dry up from moist
before using and then put everything back inside at the very end of the day=
For my recorder I'm using a bag like the Portabrace ones.  that are
giving it a good isolation.
Today I'm working between 1=B0 and -3=B0 Celsius. No issues so far.
