The Clip has an advertised battery life of 15 hours.
However, after playing the clip for about 3 hours or so the battery gauge on it is already half empty. Also, I’ve had instances where I turned on my clip and battery guage shows a much lower level then when I last turned it off.
I have updated to the latest firmware. If anyone has any suggestions to correct this problem please let me know,
I’ve been seeing a similar pattern. From now on I’m going to start sliding it onto Hold when I put it in my pocket, to see if maybe I’m accidentally turning it on.
I seem to be having the same troubles. Wonder how many others are too. It’s dead in just a few hours after fully charging it.
Are you sure it was off (via the on/off switch) and not in pause?
I’d give it a few recharge cycles to see if it improves. If not, the unit is defective–exchange it at the store or contact SanDisk for an exchange.
