Hisoundaudio ROCOO BA - Superior Hi-Fi player for Ciem's & Iem's - Page 25

Hmm so you think there may be an issue with the unit? Well if that's the case it may need to go back to Hisound for RMAA after the tour. That would be a shame though.

It charged and held it's charge fine for the day I had it but worth a look to be sure it's OK. I suspect it's fine.

maybe he just needs the Studio 3rd Anniv.(looong battery life)wink.gif

I recommend for everybody who uses Hisound Rocoo's and Studio's to use the Auto-shutdown feature that way your unit will power down by itself and your battery will last much longer. I also have these Duracell battery packs which are very convenient and SIGNIFICANTLY cut down on charging time! ...here's an old picture I posted a year ago, of course now I use the thin Dual lock strips for piggybacking to one another.

How does it significantly cut down on charging time? Would using a higher rated mW wall wart to mini usb do that job better? ;) Mine is 1000 mW and I'm positive it charges much faster than on my PC :P.

You mean mA milli amps. smile.gif 1000mA is 1 amp and most usual USB port is 500mA so by using 1000mA (1 amp) will decrease the charging time, but it can also decrease the run time, because you're charging the batter at a faster rate.

I haven't noticed the battery discharging any faster :). The charge lasted me a month on the Studio V so :).

Yes, so you keep telling us. smile.gif

I know with older battery's a slow charge rate would give you longer run times, not 100% on the new ones.

I did stop using the 1500mAh charger though. I think that probably was overdoing it ;). That one was for my Sflo2 before. I don't mind waiting a bit longer and be on the safer side with 1000mAh. I also charge my T1 amp via this method. Dual charger slots.

it seems like these battery packs will just "pour itself" into your unit. Last time I connected the Studio into the wallwart it took many, many hours to get a full charge. With the battery pack, it took less than two hours for the Studio to drain the battery pack and it seem to be at full charge(it sure as hell lasted like was). Btw, I have never experienced any decreased playing time from the faster charging.

I believe it's this one. I bought a two pack for like $15-$20 through Woot.com a year ago. they've worked great for me and I only use them for my Rocoo BA, Studio, and cellphone.

Yeah it doe take several hours to fully charge my Studio V. But hey it can be done while I sleep for the most part. But I think it takes around 11 hours to fully charge from a dead unit. Meaning the battery indicator has stopped moving period. Still considering when you can charge it and how often you actually have to charge the unit it's a non-issue ;).

^absolutely agree on the non-issue part.

Would be cool if you could get a makeshift back-plate to give more room and throw a Studio V battery in their ;).

hmmmmm, I remember seeing somebody selling a Hisound Studio V housing recently here on the FS threadsrolleyes.gif

 

Edit: wouldn't the different battery mess with the sound? if not, it would be a great upgrade.
