Garmin Edge 305 Battery Time

Does anyone run their Edge with the backlight "always on"?

If you do, about how long can you ride?

The manual is very nonspecific - "About 12 hours under normal use". Whatever that means .

I do. I've gone as long as 3.5 hours & still have more than half my bars. Don't know what the limit is.

If the bar indicators are a linear function of battery life, that would be about 7 hours limit. Not bad. Thanks!
