I have a Standard Horizoni bought for $99 at West Marine. Sorry I can't remember the model... I live in Canada and keep it at our condo in Florida for use when I go out on charters and occasional deliveries in Florida during the winter. It amazes me. I charge it, use for a couple of days, store it sometimes for 6 months, turned off, then use it again in and off for 10-12 days, store it again for a month or two... And on... and on... And for almost two years, I turn it on and it fully charged. I charge it when I head off on a delivery, or a longish trip, etc. But it usually doesn't need it. It is amazing!
