gopro mount so you can connect it with the k-edge mount
still need to find a shop selling the batterypack (and not the complete light kit)

Never let it go as far as 10%, but I would expect about 8 - 9 hours of use. This is while following a course, recording interval set to 1s and recording HR, power, cadence/speed and Di2 gears. Have disabled the buddy settings, but keep it connected to my phone.

Look at these several options https://www.bestadvisers.co.uk//solar-chargers, personally, I like the backpack - it's quite convenient, but then you'll have to use a long cord. There is still a very cool project on kickstart, but I do not know how you could fix it and need a flashlight) But it's very small and powerful. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/luminaid/ultralight-phone-charger-luminaid-solar-inflatable?utm_campaign=7pzrc1j5&utm_content=link&utm_medium=redirect&utm_source=kickbooster
