No battery capacity is given in the specification, and I suspect that it cannot be used off the bike, nor can it be charged from a wall outlet or USB port as the Reecharge can, as it only accepts AC input.
I read the phrase "cache battery" when I looked at it and thought it was just that - a battery to be used with the E-werk to stabilise the power output. Not a storage battery.
Personally I regard even the Biologic Recharge as a bit limited. I use the Power Monkey Extreme which has 5 times the capacity. Heavier of course.
From my use when I had the e-werk cache battery, it works off the bike as well. But like il Padrone I've got the Power Monkey Extreme which holds heaps of power and comes with a small solar panel to recharge if your stopped for a day or so. Does take more than a day to recharge it via solar, but can be charged via dynamo as well.
