I have trolled the boards and havent seen this, I am currently sitting vigil at the hospital with a seriously ill family member in 10-16 hour a day shifts, as a result, the Fuze is a true blessing. I load it with music, podcasts and various video podcasts as well as shows and movies. I am putting its endurance to the test as I relie on it for sanity.
Now, I know the battery should last roughly 24 hrs, give or take, if I listen to audio only. And 5 hrs or so, if I do straight video playback so I should get a time somewhere between those two if I mix them, which I do.
I don’t think I am getting that out of it. Yesterday is a good example, I listened to podcasts,and radio for about 6 hrs, and video for about 90 mins only. And had to stop playing with it, as it was redlighting, I.E., the battery symbol starts flashing red to indicate power is dangerously low.
Now, on the boards advise, I put all audio on a 4gb microsdhc card and videos are on the internal flash dr. All audio is standard mp3 nothing fancy. I know battery life is not exact, but doesnt this sound unusually weak or short?
