I was actually not so lucky. I had issues with my M8 not being recognized by the computer (works fine with a iphone though. Go figure.) Tried it on 3 computers with 2 different OS's. Finally after 2 months of back and forth with Centrance Tech they told me to pay $99 and ship it back to them for repairs. :/ Still debating on what to do since it does work fine with Iphones, just not my computer. 

 

PS. Careful about that brick charger. I accidentally missed the charging port on mine and pressed it against the Hifi-M8 aluminum chassis. Lots of sparks and the surge fried my desktop Mobo since it was hooked onto the same power strip with no surge protection. Been extremely cautious of charging the thing ever since. Don't absentmindedly plug in the charger like me or it'll go "BOOM" ;)

good day head-fier's, can some1 please tell me if they have experienced battery failure with their centrance M8(ipod edition) because of no usage? i have not used mines in about 10 months simply because i have a chord hugo that fits all my needs and more. i tried charging it yesterday for a whole 24 hours but the battery does not hold it's charge. i just want to say also i have only 24 hours or less combine on this centrance M8. i called centrance about warranty period and they said only 1 year warranty. they also stated $99.00 for a battery replacement & labor :angry_face:  plus shipping.  if anyone wants to purchase a lightly used centrance M8(ipod edition) with all packaging PM me for price & shipping. paypal payment only!

Ouch dude. First I've heard of battery issues. I think my unit is about 3 years old still holds 8 hr charge.

OVERHEATING

I have found that if I leave the M8 and the iPhone 4S on charge overnight the unit gets very hot!

If I turn off the IPhone charging (i.e. power switch back to middle position) as soon as the phone gets to 100%, I can leave the M8 plugged into the charging cable, and it switces off the charging when fully charged. No more overheating.
