    Hello,

    I invite you to read the documentattion relating to the charging of the batteries of this technology. The charging time is neither directly dependent on the capacity nor linear. On my GPS the charging time following a complete discharge took 3 hours, discharging to 40% the charging time is also around 3 hours. and around 1h30 for 15%.

    Hi,

    which documentation are you referring to?

    It looks as if my device has issues: I am using a 2 Amp-charger and it takes me more than 10(!) hours to come to 90%.

    Hi,

    Ask the question to google "Charging a Li-Ion battery" and you will be able to consult the basic data.

    As the charging time depends on the current, your charger does not simply charge 2A.

    When it is connected to a USB port of a recent PC the charge takes how long.

    I have chargers which have the capacity to deliver 2A and a PowerBank which can also deliver 2A.

    But if I plug it into a POWER BANK which cannot deliver 2A the load never succeeds.

    Change your charger and it will be better.

    Hi,

    I don't quite understand but my experience is: using a regular charger (I tested about 4-5 different, one of them being an original twonav device) will never bring the device to 100%, it charges 5% per hour average which means - in theory - after 20 hours the battery pack should be at 100%. It is not. It will simply stop charging after a while.

    Using a 2Amp charger or a laptop it will charge at about 8-10% per hour and bring the device to 98% or 99%, never to 100%.

    Do yu think this is reasonable?

    Thanks for your opinion.

    Good evening,
     
    It is a current load and as the load curve is expontential, and the load current decreases as the load grows.
     
    You cannot extrapolate a charge time of 80% to 90% for a charge of 10% to 50%.
     
    You should read the technical documents dealing with this subject.
     
    My advice, leave your GPS screen on, satellite reception OFF, fully discharge which will take a night plus a morning.
     
    Then brab it on your charger and note the time it will take.
     
    You would have done it instead of wasting your time on this forum you would have your answer.
     
    I am a user like you, and I did this operation, the charge lasted 3 hours.
     
    When I ask myself questions I do the test accordingly and I have my answer cordially
     
    Not being behind you, to note your "tests" I do not venture to formulate an opinion. It is feedback.

    Hi again,

    thanks for your feedbak, unfortuantely this is not what I was asking for. I did exactly the test as you said: I discharged the GPS down to 10% or less and started charging. With a regular charger it took 20h to come to >90%, with a 2A-charger it took about 10h to come to 90%.

    All I was asking is: what are the experiences of other Aventura 2 users: how long does it take to charge your device? Is it an Aventura 2?
