    GSHOCK-RANGEMAN-GPR-B1000: SOLAR CHARGING - Question

    Hi - I bought cool fire (40 000 LUX led charging station) and I put my Rangeman on it for like 3.5hrs. It had 3/4 and it did not get to 4/4 in this 3.5hrs..... 40K Luxes... While after putting it in charger it got to 4/4 after like around 1hr? Anyone can tell me whats their charging time? Cloudy day I assume aint possible to charge it - is it?

    Well......

    I have had mine 2 weeks now, with daily use - running Baro in the main time screen and using the gps twice a day for a combined 90+ mins - and I am still at 4 bars!

    Now it has been really warm and sunny here on the west coast of Canada, so perhaps it’s getting enough “outside time” to keep it charged?

    Maybe you are right. I was using Display + SunRise/SunSet and it went to 3/4 because of that (maybe this display is taking power or something no idea).... But nevertheless Led Charge 40k LUX seems to be too weak....

    The Baro display, while less pixels (if that’s what they are?), does up date as the pressure changes.....whereas the sunrise/sunset is a static display right?

    So I would have thought less power used than the time/Baro?

    My unscientific testing has me firmly convinced that Time/Baro is the highest battery load of all the standard face displays. Having said that, my experience is that it doesn't much matter unless you're leaving your Rangebeast on a shelf or somewhere without wearing it for a few weeks or more. If I'm out and about wearing my Rangebeast I wouldn't think twice about using the Time/Baro display, no problems at all. If I'm parking it for a while, as I am now, I make sure that it is NOT in Time/Baro mode.

    I’ve noticed that the beast is not only the most power hungry but the slowest to charge of all my G’s and I assumed it was because of the little car battery that is fitted in the watch.
