Short battery life

Only getting about 4 hrs on battery playing radio only.

Maybe I can make a warranty claim? I understand it’s a 12 mo warranty.

Thanks for any comments or advice.


Maybe make sure the radio function is closed when you are not using the player.  I know there is a similar battery drain problem with the iPod Nano using Radio Mode.

    Maybe try shifting to a Music or Card Mode after using the Radio. Then power off.

Good idea. Typically I do move to another mode prior to power off.

I had an email response from Sandisk, so maybe I will get a resolution.

I am using the Firmware 1.12 it came with.  (A month ago) have not updated

to 1.13 yet.
