I am gonna drain the battery completely before a full charge to see the potential from this battery.
i dont think many people know this but it is very useful to know :
settings/general settings/system/charge during usb connection
no = wont charge
yes = will charge at .100 mah (one tenth of an amp per hour)
force = will charge at .500 mah (half an amp per hour) this is the max an average usb port can pump out
"yes" should take over 7 hours
"force" setting should take like an hour and a half for a full charge
as its charging you can see whats going on
pause so no music is playing and go to :
system/debug (keep out)/view battery
flick the wheel up and down a little
one of the screens has "ibat:" information this shows you how much mah the player is using
voltage x amperage = wattage
then flick up to see the battery voltage graph (might take a few minutes for graph) when the line is flat line going across your battery is charged - this is normally when the players shows 100% if your wps has that info.
hope this info is useful to someone out there.
it would be great to get your ibat numbers with the ssd drives to see how much they actually drain.
i can give you mine if anyone needs it , let me know
i have a toshiba 240gig zif drive in my ipod 5.5
