those little lcd screens don’t last forever and for someone who plugs the fuze+ in overnight every night (rather than the hour or so it might take to fully charge), that is significantly increasing the screen’s working hours over time.
It seems… cheap that this hasn’t been addressed already. Every other USB charged product (cellphones) I’ve ever used shuts the lcd off after a few seconds of being plugged in and not accessed.
The Fuze, Clip, and Clip+ screens always shut off after a while of being plugged in to USB…after one hour, I believe. I’d imagine the Fuze+ would behave in a similar manner. A workaround for this with the older models was to use a wall charger, which is always what I’ve done.
I plugged in my Fuze+ 8gig at 6:00 this morning and it is now 12:40 and it’s still on. I think at the six-hour mark we can assume it stays on indefinitely.
Also, a workaround that requires one to purchase extra equipment is hardly a workaround. There’s also no guarantee that it would even work with the Fuze+.
