For the longest possible duration, the Lithium Polymer is the battery of choice. Specifically designed for the Satmap Active 10 and Active 12, the chemistry in this battery is optimised for long duration over a wide range of temperatures & conditions. There are two power options available for use with the Active 10 and Active 12, allowing you to choose the one which suits your needs best. AA batteries give you the flexibility to carry spares and easily swap them half way round a walk, whereas the Lithium Polymer rechargeable batteries increase battery life by around 30%, and could end up being more cost effective when the unit is used on a regular basis. Whichever option you choose, it is always advisable to remember the power saving tips to get the most from your battery (see the User Guide). The Standard Power Bundle comes complete with: LiPol 2,700mAh battery Wall charger with multi-country interchangeable heads (UK, USA, EUR, AU), Car charger USB cable Satmap Active 10 and Active 12 devices can be recharged using this bundle via the USB cable from Laptops, PC's, 110/240V wall sockets, and 12V cigarette lighter sockets.

The li-poly battery lasts well enough, going for around six hours off a full charge with moderate screen use. I've got the 1.2 firmware installed on my satmap so, as of Aug 2008 I should be getting the best possible battery life. The battery also weighs less than the three AA batteries it's replacing.
Points to note:
1. You have to remove the battery caddy in the satmap to install the li-poly battery, and the instructions say 'Unclip the battery caddy by gently pulling on the top left corner'. Well I tried, gently, I really did, but it was clipped fast, and I only managed to unclip it by using the point of a knife to gently lever out the left hand corner.
2. The satmap device just shows that the battery is charging, but not how far it's got to go, and doesn't show when it's fully charged, so you have to pull the USB cable out to see what the battery level indicator says. Satmap say they'll fix this with a software update.
3. The interchangeable charger heads click in to place *very* firmly and I found them impossible to remove without using a pencil or something similar to dislodge them.
The charger works via the USB connector, and the battery will also charge when the unit is connected to a computer via USB. So, if you think you'll never need the mains charger it would be cheaper to buy the battery on its own.
