Lithium batteries can last 5+years if properly maintained. I.e don't leave out in the sun, extreme cold, in the washing machine etc.
Having trouble with video transfer for your View? Try using the Any Video Converter (yes that's the name). It can be downloaded at www.any-video-converter.com (pick the free one) It's easy to use, just make it a .mp4

The battery (Lithium-Ion) IS replaceable in the e200 series players.
The battery (Lithium-Polymer) IS NOT replaceable in the FUZE or the CLIP (by you, SanDisk or anybody)!
This battery is designed to out-last the Li-ion type. Just to give you an idea of the life expectancy; I have a cell phone with a Lithium-Ion type battery. It gets used everyday, much more than anyone's mp3 player would (well . . . alright, more than MOST people's mp3 player would). This phone is 8 years old and still has the original battery! Yes, the charge isn't lasting quite as long these days, but I think 8 years is pretty darn good. By contrast, my daughter is on her 4th phone in the same amount of time (of course that really doesn't have anything to do with the battery). It depends a lot on how you take care of it.

Battery life another discussion on this. bdb said his other player, after 3 years was down from 12 hours to 2, and Fuze start out at 24. So that gives you an idea of how long this can last. And by then you will probably want a new one anyway (maybe).
