handled GPS consumption while in achor watch mode?

Maybe a dumb question, but i was wondering:
Most of the handled GPS (like Garmin, let s say GPSMAP 76Cx, for less than 200$) says around 10-12 hours of battery life.
I am thinking of buying one of those for the emergency bag and to use as anchor guard.
What is the consumption when used on anchor alarm mode ?
do you have to anticipate a 12v connection kit to use it like that ?
or tons of AA batteries ?
