My brother wanted me to ask a few questions about eggs that I couldnt answer myself:

1) Is it safe to keep cracked raw eggs refrigerated in a sealed container?

2) Will hardbolied eggs spoil if left at room temperature? Still in shell, if that makes a difference.

3) A good, low carb, snack is... ?

1) I'd guess it is.
2) Depends on how long you plan on leaving it out there...everything spoils after awhile.
3) Tuna, Chicken, Beef Jerky, Mozarella cheeze, etc. etc.

sorry, allow me to be more specific:
1) Would the amount of time they be good be less than if they had been left shelled? My brother wants to crack several ahead of time, and only make a portion of them to save time in the morning.

2)How long are we talking before they spoil? I believe he wants to take them to school with him. I have no idea if they are going to be in his car (hot) or in his locker (room temp).

I would not eat cracked eggs, due to the increased risk of salmonella. Either eat the egg, or discard the unused portion.

Cooking the egg thoroughly would more than likely remove any bacteria (salmonella), but why take the chance?

Go ahead and remove them from the shell, and they should be fine for a couple of hours, especially if he keeps them in a cooler of some sort. When I had to pack my breakfast I left boiled eggs in my car for 2-3 hours without any problems, but I did keep them in a cooler.

Thanks for the responses. I think he wanted to keep the hardboiled eggs unrefridgerated, but ill just tell him to buy an icepack. And cracking eggs ahead of time was just for convenience, but ill mention the increase risk of salmonella.

You probably would not need an icepack, but an insulated cooler would work just fine.

Just boil up the eggs a couple of days in advance and store them in the fridge. When carrying the eggs to school, the cooler should keep them cool enough until it is time to eat them.

i don't see the need to refrigerate hardboiled eggs. think about easter -- i remember coloring the eggs, leaving them out on the table and eating them over a few days time. obviously, if you can refrigerate them, do it but i just don't think you will get sick from eating them otherwise.
