What is the Battery Life of the ELEMNT BOLT?

The ELEMNT BOLT can be charged using the included Micro USB cable. When fully charged, the Bolt will function up to 15 hours continuously, depending on enabled features.

For maximum battery life, consider disabling the following features:

  • Backlight: Continuous use of the backlight plays a big factor in battery drain. Either disabling or setting a short (5-second) timeout period helps to maximize battery life.
  • LEDs: The side and top LEDs also contribute to battery drain. Consider disabling LED indicators in the settings.
  • Routing: Using Turn-by-Turn routing consumes the battery faster than just recording a route. To get the longest batter life, ride without Turn-by-Turn directions enabled.
