I don’t know exactly what sort of battery the Sansa Clip uses, but I do know that it’s not replacable, and that different types of rechargable batteries should be treated differently in order to last the longest (i.e., most number of charges or partial charges or usage time etc.)
Is there solidified wisdom on how, when, and for how long to charge the Clip’s battery? That is, are partial charges (which happens anytime you connect the clip to your computer anyway) a good or bad thing? Is it important to use the battery all the way down before recharging? (and if so, as a one-time thing to “calibrate” the battery, vs. as regular practice)
Anyway, I’m sure there’s a solid knowledge base out there on this sort of stuff, but Sansa’s documentation is pathetic and I can’t easily find threads that answer these questions. Thanks.
