Hi there. I’m thinking about buying a Sansa Clip 2GB. However, since there are many used/refurbished items for sale, I’m strongly inclined to getting a refurbished one.
My main concern (and, basically, only one) is battery life. I can’t tell how long these refurbished players have been off the shelves and how their users used to treat them. I’ve read about batteries self-discharging in one day even in new Clips (bought right from the store, not used nor refurbs).
I’m from Brazil and I’m buying them through ebay, that’s why I need to get my choices right the first time - there’s no returning the item.
Are my chances of getting a perfectly functional one greater if I get a refurbished one? Afterall, they’ve been through Sandisk techs twice so they’ve gone through quite some testing, I suppose.
Thanks in advance,
