12v devices on a 6v bike?

    I regularly use my sat nav on my bike to get around and am always worried about the battery dying on me! Can anyone suggest how I can charge these 12v devices on my 6v powered bike? Is there some kind of converter (that doesn't cost the earth) I can use?

Rechargable power pack.....

When I use my Sat Nav on one of my older bikes I have a small rechargable battery (made by Duracell) which can be connected via the USB charging socket. Between the built in battery and the power pack I'm good for about 8 hours use, and both sat nav and power pack can be recharged by plugging into a USB slot if someone where I'm staying has a PC.


Hope this helps,
