Tigra Power Plus Bike Mount Performs well but slow charging
Initial impression - the unit is rather large, but it also seems pretty tough. The clip that closes the top is so tight it needs a small blade or similar to open so there's no fear of the phone coming out accidentally. The handlebar mount also seems robust. I haven't been out in rain yet so no idea on waterproofness. Most important to me is battery performance. The unit seems quite slow to charge - needing several hours to fully charge. The instructions are v basic so difficult to understand the meanings of the flashing charging light but after leaving for several hours the blinking changed and it was fully charged. On my first long trip, starting with a full phone charge and full charge in the Power Plus Bike Mount, I had the phone GPS tracking with constant screen display. The iphone on its own lasted about 2 hours. Switched on the Tigra and after about 4 hours cycling I had a fully charged phone again and still more charge in the Tigra. So there's at least 5 or 6 hours of GPS tracking and screen display. Which is long enough for any of my rides!
