So, I've decided to treat myself to a Gardiners backpack. A few questions before I start using it. I've plugged it in to charge it (it does say it comes fully charged) and no lights are visible on the volt meter. It is charged as I have switched it on. I bought it with no connections as I wanted to use a male EZ-snap in the backpack hose and attach to the female EZ-snap on my poles. Will a male EZ-snap hold in the hose? Does water drip constantly out of the backpack when not in use? Maybe Alex Gardiner could shed some light for me?
