The ELEMNT is charged by using the Micro USB cable provided. When fully charged, the ELEMNT will function for up to 17 hours.
For maximal battery life, consider disabling the following features:
- Backlight: Continuous use of the backlight is a big factor to battery drain. Consider disabling or setting to a short time period such as 5 seconds.
- LEDs: The side and top LEDs also contribute to faster battery drain. Consider disabling the use of the LED indicators.
- Routing: Using Turn-by-Turn routing consumes the battery faster than just recording a route. To get the longest batter life, consider riding without using Turn-by-Turn directions.
