I have a 2gb Clip with version 20 firmware. The battery self-discharges about 3% to 8% per day without using it (right click on Clip icon -> properties). Is this “normal,” or is my Clip’s battery defective?
I’ve read the other posts on this subject. Most people seem to have trouble with their Clip completely self-discharging or self-discharging much quicker, while mine “slowly” discharges. I’ve heard that most rechargeable batteries will usually self-discharge slightly/slowly. Should a Clip not lose any charge at all when it’s turned off (or less than what mine is?)? I’ve been trying to decide if I should return it, and see if a new Clip will not lose any charge. I’ve got about one week left to return or exchange it at the store.
