According to the manual, when AK100 was first released and the battery was fresh in the box, the device was rated for "about 16 hours of continues" lossless play (normal usage with clicking, scrolling and some screen back-light). For mp3s it should be a lot more but that also depends on the kbps (128kbps mp3 would play a lot longer then 320kbps). 

 

Generally if you notice your battery meter jump down in big or unexpected increments its time to change the battery.

I informally measure a battery's capacity by how much I put back in charging. It's an old rc hobby trick. Time plus average amps charging and you get your mah reading.

The manual says a new one can be charged in a little over 5 hours. Mine charges in about that time. I know, my battery is still quite fresh. 

If you flatten the AK100's power and get it to fully charge in less than that time,  You will get an idea of the battery capacity relative to a new one.

How long you player should last depends on usage. E.g standalone, amped, type of files to process, volume level, headphone impedance, etc.

Final word: just enjoy the DAP and take action only when it bothers you.
