battery life

I see that the battery should last up to 15 hours. I can’t make it through a 8 hour work shift. it generally will last about 6 hours.

What can I do? I sit behind a computer all day and NEED my music to make it through.

The battery life tests arent realistic. They use a very low quality Mp3 file. Depending on the file type and the bitrate, the battery will decrease. Things you can do to help battery life are to turn down the brightness as low as you can (and still be able to see it) and to turn the backlight timer down to the shortest option, and finally try to skip as few songs as possible (The backlight comes on everytime you skip). Things you could try to help are things like a wall charger, or travel charger so you can charge it at work and still listen to it.
