New Shanren Discovery GPS unit has claimed 96 hour battery life

GPS unit funded via Indiegogo aims to break the GPS battery life ceiling

Cycling GPS units have a habit of dying if you’re doing much more than the usual Sunday morning run, back for lunch. But the new Shanren Discovery GPS has a claimed battery life of 96 hours, so you should be able to take on multi-day rides without needing to recharge.

You’d expect a GPS with that sort of battery life to be a monster. The Shanren Discovery unit is a bit chunkier than a Garmin, but at 137g it’s not too bulky and it way outlasts Garmin’s maximum 15 to 20 hour battery life in its units. The screen is 6.8cm wide and displays 28 data fields. It’s controlled via three buttons on the top of the GPS.
