I just read in another topic that one factor in preserving a Sansa player’s battery life is your “charging habits.”
What is the most efficient way to charge the battery to maintain its life? A little charge often, or let it run low and then do a long charge, or what? (Each time I connect the player to my PC it tops up the charge.)
I have just bought a Sansa Fuze 4gb (and a mains charger to go with it.) So far so good and I am very pleased with it.
I want to make it last as long as possible though so I would appreciate any tips you can give me. I have already set the settings to minimum brightness, 10 second backlight, 5 minute standby etc. I keep the volume as low as possible, too, but do higher EQ settings use more power?
Finally, what kind of lifespan can I expect from my player? Is it possible to send away the unit to SanDisk to install a new battery?
