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?

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.

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.
