Does the size of the SD card you use with the Clip+ really kill your battery faster? Put another way, if I use a 16gb sd card, will that kill battery life faster than if I was using a 4 or 8gb sd card? I am trying to figure out a way to squeeze more battery life out of my Clip+. Drives me nuts … Sandisk really needs to work on upping the ante on battery life for the next generation Clip.
I don’t believe that the card size makes a difference as to battery life (or, if it does, it seemingly would be very minimal).
The best way to coax more battery life out of the Clip: load and use the Rockbox alternative firmware. From Rockbox.org. Especially with the Clip+, a seemingly significant battery increase (the last battery tests I saw showed around 15+ hours using Rockbox).
