With the Black Diamond NRG/NRG2 Car Charger, you can power up your NRG battery pack (sold separately) on the way to crags or during a marathon drive. This car charger plugs into a standard 12-volt car outlet and charges battery packs for the Apollo and Orbit lanterns and the Icon headlamp.
- Q & A
Pass on this one.
If you've already have the recharging kit that came along with the battery pack, than this is an over priced nonessential piece you can live without. It takes 8-9 hours to recharge, Buy yourself a cheap inverter and plug your AC charger into that if you must be able to charge from your car.
Will the Apollo operate via the charger...
Will the Apollo operate via the charger cord (without batteries, using the cord alone)?
Yes, it does.
I'm not one to prepare for things much in advance, so it's nice to be able to charge things on the way to the trailhead. This is a must for my car! Works great, plug into the Orbit Lantern or the Apollo Lantern and your good to go!
