    I got 2 wcw packs, dose as it says on the tin H. Over night charge lasts a day easy, two if you forget to charge one lol. But if it wasn't for having to stop and refill so often I wouldnt bother up grading to van mount tbh.

    But dont trust the handle to carry and I'd give it about 5 minutes on your back till you say sod it!!! A little trolly, maplins £14.99 a must! Oh power, the pump will feed a 45' foot pole all day! GF

    Maybe so but they get the job done !!!!

    I use mine 2 times a week some weeks doing tops only wfp and I haven't charged it for 3 months seriously !!!
    But I suppose it depends on how much the pump is running at .

    Think you will find you will shorten the life of the backpack battery if not charged after each use.
