I've never had one long enough for the battery to die....it must take a good long while.

I am hoping that Sandisk comes out with some more capable players. The last two players I bought were made by a company other than Sandisk. I wanted something more capable than Sandisk currently offers.
I am hoping Sandisk comes out with a player under $100 that has HD radio, two card slots, bluetooth, a metal case, and 40+ hours of battery life.

From your mouth to heaven's ears . . . . I've written of wanting a metal-cased Uber-Clip for years, seeing them in platinum, gold and bronze varieties.
But, does any current player have two card slots? (And I can't exactly recall one from the past, although I have a faint recollection that there might have been one.) My guess is, with the declining price of microSDXC cards (I scored a major manufacturer 128GB microSDXC card for just under US$30 this past Black Friday--although this probably is not exactly a fair comparison), DAP manfs. might see multiple slots as unnecessary. Having said that, a 256+GB DAP would be sweet.

There are now a few players that have two microSD card slots. I haven't noticed any with 4 slots yet. The players I have noticed with two card slots are all over $100, with some even over $1,000. They also have short battery life, 11 hours or less. With the increasing interest in FLAC and especially high resolution files, having multiple card slots makes sense. I guess something like 300 CDs ripped to FLAC fit on a 128GB card? Some people have music collections with thousands of CDs, and to carry it all in FLAC they might need a player with 16 card slots. Before we see players with 8 card slots though, we will need to see at least a few with 4 card slots.

I almost exclusively listen to audiobooks. So my ideal mp3-audiobook-player...
And that's about it.
The result is very cheap hardware with a few specific software requirements.
