It feels like at least a few hours more. That was a nice surprise because colour displays usually suck more power than monochrome ones, so it was the opposite of my expectation.What's the battery life compared to v1?
I have done 16 hour rides with half of it in darkness (with the occasional backlight usage when instructions are displayed or when I check the map or elevation data). That's while following a GPX track and recording and it still had something like 20% battery charge left.
The only time I actually needed that charging cable on the bike was on the ride from Aichi to Tokyo (24h Flèche ride). Any Century distance or 200 km brevet I'd be fine all day.
