GPS Chargers

From the road to the trail and beyond, you rely on your GPS to get you where you need to go. A dead GPS battery can be a major inconvenience. Fortunately, Batteries Plus Bulbs carries a large variety of GPS chargers and adapters to keep your device powered on and ready to use the moment you need it. Discover chargers from top brands, including Sony, RoadTech, TomTom and Garmin GPS chargers.

Ensure Compatibility by Checking Your Device Model

When purchasing a replacement GPS charger, check your device model to ensure compatibility. Some GPS devices use standard mini or macro USB cables for charging while certain brands and models require manufacturer-specific cables. Failing to adhere to the manufacturer's recommendations could void your warranty and potentially cause damage to the device.

Types of GPS Chargers

Power up your GPS from the driver's seat or home with the right GPS charger made specifically for the model you have. Charge your device using a wall outlet, USB-enabled port or your vehicle's cigarette lighter port. Use your GPS while the device is charging, or let it charge to full capacity before you hit the road. When shopping for a new GPS charger, get the most out of your device by looking for the following convenient features:

  • Rapid charge capabilities. Get all the power you need with faster charge times.
  • Dual port charging. Charge more than one device at a time.
  • Enhanced safety features. Opt for built-in protection that prevents overcharging.

How to Extend the Life of Your GPS Battery

A dead battery can be a major inconvenience whenever you're trying to get from point A to point B. Batteries don't last forever. Use the following tips to extend the life of your GPS battery:

Disable Unused Features

If you use your GPS frequently with all of its features enabled, your battery may only last for a few hours. Disable features you aren't using, such as the electronic compass, track record, WAAS and GLONASS.

Fully Exit the Camera App

Some GPS models have a built-in camera. If you don't exit the camera app after you've finished taking photos, it could drain power. Fully exit the camera app whenever you're not using it.

Adjust Screen Options

Some of the biggest power drains on a GPS device are the screen settings. Big, bright screens can quickly drain power. While you need to be able to see the screen to know where you're heading, adjust the following settings to use less power:

  • Turn down the backlight.
  • Adjust the timeout setting from "stays on" to a lower increment.
  • Set the touch sensitivity to normal.
  • Enable battery save mode.
