The Lithium Polymer (LiPol) battery has a capacity of 2700mAh, giving a very long duration, and is ideal for users who prefer a more environmentally friendly option, and the lowest possible running costs. It needs to be charged whilst in your Satmap GPS device, from either the wall charger, car charger or even from a PC/laptop - all via the USB cable.
The standard AA batteries sit in a battery caddy that un-clips and unplugs: into this gap fits the Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery. A full recharge generally takes about 6-8 hours and can last between 12 and 16 hours. Please note : this product is sold as a spare LiPol battery, and as such does not include the Satmap car charger, wall charger or USB cable - all of which are required for the proper recharging (and warranty) of this battery.
