I usually read the forums but now have a question of my own. When I first used my clip, I only got a battery life of about 10.5 hours. That was playing mainly 128 kbps wma files. During my second “run”, I played more 96 kbps songs and got just under 13 hours. Is there any relation between bit rate and battery life, in that a higher quality song requires more juice to read and play it?
A secondary concern is that that last 1/4 of the battery life, as indicated on the oled, doesn’t last very long (1.5 hours or so). Does anyone else see that as well?
I’m thinking of returning my 2 gb clip and waiting for the 4 gb version, which looks fantastic.
