Garmin’s External Fitness Power Pack by powermonkey-eXplorer allowing you to stay off the beaten track for longer.

Designed specifically for Garmin’s range of fitness and outdoor products, this water-resistant power pack houses a 2200mAh lithium-Ion battery capable of recharging 5V devices while remaining robust, compact and lightweight enough for space and weight-conscious outdoor enthusiasts.

Suitable for even the most demanding riders, the external power pack provides real power when you need it most – the added 20 hours of extra ride time on the Edge® 800 makes the combination ideal for everything from week-long touring holidays to 24 hour marathon racers.

Users can recharge the pack 3 ways via: the included folding solar panel which allows the external power pack to be recharged to one third in 5 hours and fully within 15 hours; the universal mains charger compatible in more than 150 countries; and USB in under 7 hours.
