I recently got my Fuze+ for my birthday and I want to know how I should charge. Like what level is best or if I should go through a few fully charged to completely dead cycles before a regular charging when needed. Any help would be welcome, thanks!
This thread should be of interest.
It’s best to charge whenever convenient. If you’re working with the computer, simply plug the Fuze+ in for a charge. The device automatically manages the battery for you.
Thanks for the link! I like that the batteries have almost no certain charging needs.
I charge every time that Sansa releases new firmware because you should have at least have half of the battery capacity to ensure a smooth upgrade. Then I check to see if it’s reponsive with 90% capacity, and if not I put it in my desk drawer. I have never had it fully discharge in my desk drawer so I rate the battery life as awesome+. In a few months I check back to see if it’s time to charge again for a new firmware upgrade.
If you’re asking about battery life while in use, I can’t answer that yet. If it ever becomes reponsive with 90% capacity, I imagine that I’ll be using it daily and I’ll let you know how the batter works in use.
Life expectancy gets lower the more you charge it.
I did what these guys are suggesting with an older creative Zen and after a while a full charge
would last about 5/10 minutes and it would be dead again…
Bootom line is if you want your device to last dramaticly longer then do the following…
Don’t charge unless its close to dead (unless upgrading firmware)
Do not plug device in unless there is a good reason.
Always make sure to shut off AND Stop media from playing when your done.
Don’t leave it on the table playing all the time this really REALLY kills it quicker !
Seriously take my advice, i have a collection (graveyard) of lithium ion powered devices, i know what im talking about
Some people don’t care how long their device lasts… i gave this speech to a family member about their laptop + iPhone
and i was told that “I don’t care i’ll buy another one” so if you like throwing money around just ignore me
