For this weekend’s brevet I knew that my GPS would run out of power at some point. I have a Dyno hub on the Pelican but I don’t have a way to charge the gps AND power the lights at night. So I brought along my Brunton Inspire battery pack.
I had to plug it in to the GPS about 12 hours into my ride. It worked pretty well except for one issue. The cable kept pulling itself out of the battery pack and the GPS would beep that it lost power. The cable that it comes with isn’t very long so the battery pack ended up hanging from the cable and inevitably the cable would pull out. So at the next scheduled stop I bought some electrical tape and taped the cable to the battery. This simple bodge job did the trick and I made it the rest of the distance with no problems.
I ended the ride with a fully charged GPS and still had a pretty full charge on the Brunton Inspire. Looks like it will work out good for the upcoming 400k.
