GPS Power Pack

My Garman Nuvi 350 only holds a charge for about 3 hours. I drive a cab, and most of the time the dc outlet doesn't work. Does anyone know of an inexpensive power pack that might run my GPS for a longer period or at least charge it up. Any ideas gang?

My suggestion

In reply to: GPS Power Pack

What I recommend is $7 more than what Mr. Moderator suggested, but I think it's worth the go.

The Coleman has, according to Amazon,
1. A swiveling 12 volt power port for easy access of accessories
2. Recharges your car battery through the cigarette lighter socket
3. Runs all your 12-volt accessories
4. Dimensions(WxHxL) - 6 x 3 x 11.5

My suggestion, the 'Xantrex XPower Mobile Mini Power Source', according to Amazon,
1. USB connector with pivoting arm for direct connection to mobile devices
2. Three amp-hour lithium-ion battery pack
3. Recharges from a standard wall outlet, a vehicle, or a computer
4. One additional USB charge port
5. LED battery status/charge status indicator

I like how it's compatible with USB, and the lithium-ion lasts at least 72 hours, although I don't know how long the Coleman lasts.

It's up to you man!
