You won't overcharge: the Clips have an overcharge protection circuit.
But you can check the amount of the charge left by looking at the Clip's battery icon on the display: if it is full, 2/3rds full, 1/2 full, etc. You can also look under the Info screen (under the settings) to see the amount of battery charge left.

Thanks for the correct information.
This is the reply I received from a SanDisk Tech Rep.
Thanks for emailing SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product.
I knew he was wrong because I have been charging 36 Hours & no "Charge Complete" message yet.
Thanks Rick 4q

Continuously charging for 36 hours? Yeah, there's no message, just the battery animation stops when it's charged. Unplug and check Settings> System settings > Info and scroll down to see the % battery charge.

2. 36 hours? It only takes 3-4 hours MAX for a full charge. Many times even less.

I was wondering the same thing.
The little icon that comes up on the bottom of screen when the sansa clip+ is plugged in to computer says power is "extremly low (0%), and it says the same thng in the Sansa updater window.
I followed your instructions and checked the info screen of the the Sansa unit itself, and it shows 100%.
duh! to Sandisk.
Thanks to all who contributed.
I think WE THE PEOPLE would be lost if we left it up to the manufactuers. We need each other.
Live long and prosper.
