I was loading a book and battery level on the Clip Zip was 97%. I checked a bit later to see if it was at 100%. Nope. In fact it was giving a “critical” battery message? No juice at all. I doubt that. I unplugged it and rebooted. Now it says 97% again. I have seen this same type thing before. Sometimes if I unplug it and replug to USB I get the what i think is the true percent. Then, maybe not? This is a bit confusing. Anyone have an idea what is going on?
Are you seeing this in Windows or on the player itself? This is a known issue with Win7. It will display “Critical” at the drop of a hat, usually totally false and not update the percentage as the player gains charge. Always go by what the player says its charge is.

Thanks. Yes, I see this when I hover the cursor over the player icon on window screen. I will also see it if i click on properties and look at the battery percentage. Then, as I say… a while longer it may show 97%. I sort of figured there was some sort of ‘bug’ at work here but wanted to see if anyone agreed. Just kind of unsettling to see that when I am going out on the lake to ice fish and listen to a book while out on the frozen expanse. And no, I do not freeze. Thanks again!
Just make sure it’s charged up before you head out to the lake. Completely depleted, it should take about 3 hours or so to fully charge, so if it’s half-way down an hour or so should be suficient. This should give you 8 - 12 hours of playing time. I’d probably advise keeping the player warm inside your clothing as cold temps deplete a battery pretty quickly.
Just don’t poke anybody’s eye out with those fish.
