What would the average batery life be on the pocket PC (XDA2 or 4150) when running the Memory Map Program combined with a Bluetooth GPS ?

I ask this cause I'm considering buying the 2 for use whilst hiking.

Cheers

The battery life is always a tricky question. This really depends on what you are doing, how you use the backlight etc.

I have found that with my 2210 and my Emtac I can have the backlight on minimum and get about 7 hours usage out of the combination. This does leave the PDA quite low on power though.

A solution is to buy a battery extender such as the one from PC-mobile that we have reviewed on the site. This will allow you to recharge the PDA using 4AA sized batteries.
