    Hi @STEPHEN-32

    If you have an Apple or similar smartphone the mains charger plug that accepts an USB cable is the way to go.

    Hi
    @STEPHEN-32
    Further to Doug's post....
    If you are concerned about battery life ???
    The Charger Adapter and USB Cable supplied by Tomtom WILL run and charge the device at the same time....
    For More Info See.... https://discussions.tomtom.com/en/discussion/comment/1698416/#Comment_1698416

    If you use the device on a regular basis... The normal device powering off with the ignition will be OK
    If your car's power socket is always live... Then a short push of the Power Button will give the same results as ignition off...
    If you are NOT using the device for an extended period of time...
    A long press of the power button (Press & Hold the power button for + 2 seconds)... The device will display the menu screen with two options....
    (1)... Turn Off... Really turn the device 'OFF'
    (2)... Sleep (The same as a short push of the power button)....

    Obviously when the device is NOT in use The device shouldn't be left on the Mount especially if the cars power socket is always ON/Live....
    Also, when the device is in the Mount its in full view of potential Car Thieves....
