Is there any official response from Garmin on the obviously rampant problem of poor battery life of the Edge 130?
Just changed the battery for my and my wife's Garmin 130 devices using this 400mAh from Ali: https://aliexpress.ru/item/32331217147.html?_ga=2.222079512.1448944204.1649159448-737075485.1649159448&sku_id…
There is space in the case for a bigger battery, Garmin could have utilised that in the 130 plus AND offer an upgrade for the older 130. Missed opportunity.
I juste swap my edge 130 with 370 mah aliexpress battery,, huge upgrade for 2.5€ shipped !!!
For those asking for a solution about the poor battery life of Edge 130: I got the same problem with my unit until one day in which I forgot it charging overnight. Then I discovered that charging the battery to 100% takes 6 to 8 hours. After that, the battery runs for more that 10 hours (using only GPS)
I have been using an Edge 130 for the past 14 months, battery life is less than two hours after full charge before low battery light comes on. Contacted Garmin who want €96 just to reset it when they know full well by all the posts that they are selling a inadequate product but ( the French site ) do not careI will never by Garmin again
