Is the BLACK 8Gb Fuze a V2 only?

Hi,

 

I see new 8Gb BLACK Fuses on sale and I was wondering if they were all V2.  I quite fancy black and I want a V2 for the longer RockBox battery life (from what I've read the 8Gb silver V1 only gives 14 hours instead of 22).

 

I also need a way of identifying a V2 **BEFORE** I open the packaging.

 

Please and thank you...

Black 8GB is just a normal fuze, could be either version.

 

They haven't made v1 fuzes in years though, so unless its been sitting around for a long time its probably a v2.

It's at a Factory Direct clearance outlet so if the V1 hasn't been made in years then my guess is that it's a V2 that a retailer liquidated to make way for the Fuze+.

 

Thanks for that tidbit of info.

 

So there were Black V1 8Gb Fuzes made then?

Yes, Fuze v1 came in black.  I have a v1 and is black.

The original fuze launched in black and with 8GB of storage.  As far as I know  no new colors or storage capacities were ever introduced.

I'll bet you a cookie it's a v2.  Grab that wee beastie before it's gone!

I thought the original 8Gb Fuze was Silver...  I know there is a black one now but that came MUCH later than the silver one.  That's why I want to know.

That's my thought.  The Fuze+ is a waste of air (laggy and half baked interface, no folder support, half-assed gapless) so whaddya do?  Buy a Fuze V2 and Rockbox it (I want a V2 for the better Rockbox battery life - I have three V1s).

I sold my V1, and the V2 is working great. If I hadn't been hard up for cash, I would have kept it, but it was only getting about a half hour more battery life than my Clip+'s.
