Di2 charger in Donegal...

    Hey all, by any chance would someone have a Di2 charger I could borrow for 30mins or so - I'm in Derrybeg/Gweedore and forgot to pack mine before coming up. Was hoping to get a spin in the morning (maybe lunchtime). I could pop over with the bike to charge it... whatever is handier.
    Fingers crossed ;)

    Internal battery, with junction box on downtime (not the older one with the external battery)

    Might be worth giving the cope in dungloe a shout, cycling dept might be able to sort you out at short notice

    So....I looked back into my poor old memories and I'm fairly sure that I charged it about 1300kms ago.
    With a dog rough guess, I would probably have enough juice in it to get a spin today....if I'm wrong then I'll just not have a big ring for any dips or descents. I'm with the wife so I can try to draft behind her on the downhills as she's a deamon on the downhills :)
    I think I'll give it a try....to nice a day to not go out!

    Oh Jesus the roadworks there from Donegal town to Derrybeg when we were driving up...must have been 5 sets of lights with timers on them saying red for 5mins. Thought we'd never get here and have a pint! :)

    So we made it round a 90k loop up and down all day with more gear changes than ye could shake a stick at! Di2 lights are still flashing red, so I reckon it must have just dipped into the 25% level when I checked it yesterday evening. Delighted we got round without losing any gears. Living on the edge!! :p

    Thanks for the offers and for the tips guys! ;)
