I believe that advice is now outdated - but there is so much contradictory information about charging batteries that you may well be right. As I said, we really need someone from Fiio to give us the official line.

You're right, there is a lot of contradictory advice. Fairly sure that keeping within 20-80 is still generally the safest bet though. Would also appreciate an official line from FiiO!

The battery inside X3 has its own protective circuit to stop it from over-charging and over-discharging, so there is no harm from having it plugged in all the time.

 

However, overly idle isn't good for maintaining the battery health. It is recommended to discharge it once in awhile to make sure the chemical inside will remain active. Remember, regardless whether you uses it or not, Li-ion battery will naturally degrade and lose capacity over time. The key is not overwork it frequently nor let it idle for too long.

Anyone can recommend a program to organize songs on the DAP?Songs only show up when i "browse files" and was wondering if there was a specific way to get songs to be organized correctly under artists genre and album under the categories

Sorry for the awful spelling, writing from my mobile phone.

I am a new X3 user, and I absolutely love the sound.

 

Is there any option to disable/enable USB charging when connected to the computer (includes laptops with limited battery life), so that power is not drained faster than it needs to be on the computer?

No, there is no way to disable the charging.

@ClieOS,

 

Can the + & - contacts of the USB cable be covered w/tape to prevent only power from being routed?

Just tried, doesn't work. It probably needs the USB power to trigger the connection.

Does anyone have tried the lineout from X3? In my 2012 Mazda3 when i connect its lineout to car's AUX in, it overloads the car audio system! I had to use the headphone out at about 25-30 volume for normal listening. This was very surprising. I should note that with high quality FLACs, the lineout is much better but with my normal MP3 files (160-256 Kbps) this happens.

i believe most cars' audio systems, "line in" is actually "headphone in", so that could be why.

I use lineout on the X3 when connected to my FiiO E12. It works perfectly. Like CH23, my guess is that most car audio systems expect headphone output from portable audio devices.
