Does your battery drain quicker on the Garmin (305) if you use the heart rate strap? If so, does anyone any idea how much battery time you lose from a full charge?

Never noticed any serious battery drain with the heart rate strap with the 305 from without. In fact I don't even both charging my 305 it seems to get enough from when it sits in the cradle to sync.

Got something to say?
