Battery Life & Scanning Radio Stations.....

I do not seem to get more than a few hours of a charge from my clip.  However, I am always scanning radio stations and/or jumping to different songs on my clip.  Could this be the reason? Anyone have any tips on how to get longer battery life??

 

Thank You

Depending on how often and long you're playing with it, turning on the backlight yes, it certainly could. Set your Backlight to a short setting, set your Power Saver to a short time. And keep 'yer finger off those dang buttons! Smiley Very Happy

How many hours of charge are you getting?  Something may be up.  How about just playing the player "normally" and see what you get?  If below 8-10 hours, something may be up.
