Hi Donald,

Do a search on ebay for ... usb freeview .. and you should get a selection of what you require, some are better than others tho so take your time and see which one suits your needs but they are very cheap now.

Most come with an aerial but it is pretty poor, you will have an external one on your caravan anyway.

Regards

It should last a lot longer than that, my old one used to last an hour but this one is about 2-3hrs, dont often have mine unplugged tho.

Go into the power settings Donald and reduce all your screen brightness and other settings to minimum when running on battery. I tend to get about 3-4 hours out of mine if i use the correct settings.

Also, only have running what you need to save using battery life up unnecessarily.
