Battery life

Hi guys,

Just wanna to check here before turning my CLIP back...

 

Both just two weeks ago and not really happy at this moment.

Is it normal for clips that battery dies after 5-6h on FLAC and 7-8 with MP3? This is with rockbox. Anyway, my shuffle runs at least twice of that!

 

Regards

Re: Battery life

The Sandisk flac decoder wastes a lot of power, so battery life will be bad with FLAC files. The rockbox flac decoder however is very efficient on the zip.
