Hi folks,
I recently bought the Bike bundle and am liking it!
Just out of interest, what's the longest use anyone can (honestly!) report getting out of their LiPo battery-equipped Active 10?

Yep, sensible use of the backlight and you should be good for 12 hours.

Sorry, not yet tested it to failing. All I know is that it easily lasts for a full days hiking/biking and with some to spare. I then recharge the LiPol ready for the next outing.

EDIT - However, if I were bivvying overnight, i would make sure I had a PowerMonkey (or similar (from 7dayshop.com)) just in case.

Is the screen brightness a major drain on the battery? I've started off with using the screen on for a minute only, so it's off most of the time?
