What battery life can I expect from the different type of batteries?
Battery life on any electronic item is always determined by how much you use it. We always advise people to be sensible and use the various power saving options in Settings, such as Advanced Power Mode (which puts the device into a low power state) and the Screen Off after 15 seconds in the Power Control option.
5 to 6 hours (Ni-MH)
6 to 9 hours (Alkaline).
8 to 10 hours (AA Lithium - not rechargeable)
12-16 hours (Lipol rechargeable battery)
In general use though, many people are getting over 20 hours out of Lithium batteries by using the power save options.
Battery life on any electronic item is always determined by how much you use it and the settings that are utilised. We always advise people to be sensible and use the various power saving options in Settings, such as Advanced Power Mode and the Automatic Screen turn off to extend battery life
Why are there no more Satmap models?
Satmap are very clever, they put all their energy into one model (now the Active 12) therefore it is super reliable.
