I really don't see what is so difficult about charging these things....lol. It doesn't take long, especially when it is not all the way drained. When I was using the Clip variants as my primary players, it was a no-brainer to plug in each morning while I had my morning coffee/breakfast/Internet routine.....invariably the player would be ready before I was done. Beats the heck out of carrying around an extra battery pack, that's for sure!

An mp3 player should not be a pet that I need to feed every day. At least mp3 players don't need to be walked or have a litter box. :)
