Clip+ battery sucks - Page 3

post #31 of 34

the backlight/screen and button functions hog more current than idle playing.

 

i experienced that. i can only get around 5 hours when playing shuffle tracks pressing "forward" frequently. but when playing album [continuous] tracks it can play very long with very little battery consumption.

Yes it does, especially when I play my music from the external microSD card.

(I am about  to RockBox it to slightly improve the battery life.)

 

I've got another battery related questions:

 

- In terms of the  the Clip+ batteries' longevity  is it better to run them down -

until the Clip+ shuts off on its own - 

or recharge them when the batteries are very low, say, at 10% level.

 

- Also, is it good to top the Clip+ batteries, i.e. they're almost (say 95%)  and I recharge them.

 

- Finally, is it safe to  leave the  Clip+ hooked up to the 2.1A wall charger  (or a computer) for hours?

Does the clip+ have any shut-off circuitry which does not allow overcharging (and possibly damaging the unit)?

With the cost of the Clip+ being so cheap you might as well just carry Two of them and switch the card into the second one when the other dies.  Just a suggestion.

 

Oh dammit JakeJack_2008, you made me reply to a thread that is 3 years old.
