Garmin Charge battery pack will work with Edge and wearable devices

Garmin released details about the Garmin Charge battery pack

Garmin has released details about the new Garmin Battery pack that has been built for use with the New Garmin Edge 1030. The Garmin charge battery pack will give you up to 20 hours additional charge. Garmin is pricing the battery pack at £119.99 in the UK and $129.99 in the US. Shipping is showing about 5-8 weeks, so people will have a wait before they can get there hands on one.

Garmin battery pack can be used with other Edge devices

The biggest surprise, well not really.. is that you can use the Garmin charge battery pack with other Edge devices and other fitness wearables when using a compatible cable which is sold separately, of course. The list of comparable Garmin devices is;

  • Garmin Edge 1030
  • Garmin Edge 1000
  • Garmin Edge 820
  • Garmin Edge Explore 820
  • Garmin Edge 520
  • Garmin Fenix 5
  • Garmin Fenix 5s
  • Garmin Fenix 5x
  • Garmin Forerunner 935

I suspect this list will be longer, but I often find the Garmin website the information is sometimes not complete

Garmin charge battery pack expensive?

In my view, the Garmin battery pack is an expensive option when you can look at third party solutions such as a small ANKER power bank and a USB cable for under £18. However, the Garmin Charge battery pack is very well designed and sleek solution, so people might pay the extra for this. I suspect if this takes off, we will see other third party’s providing solutions which will drive cost down and be better for consumers.
