Default Two Questions: Battery Life and Track Gap

1. How long can the battery life be maximum if I only listen to music? What about video/games?
2. Is thet track gap automatic?

At present depending on the mixture of codecs used, options enabled and usage pattern you should get between 12-15 hours. However, that is development going on right now that will increase the battery life substantially.

Don't know, I haven't tested it out with just games or videos.

I don't understand what you mean. If you mean does Rockbox box supports gapless playback, the answer is yes. For mp3's, the tracks must be encoded with LAME.

1) 10 to 15 hours depending on the settings and file type that you are playing. I am not sure about video and games.
2) You need to encode the MP3s with the gapless. I am not sure about the other formats.

M'kay, thanks for the answers.

I'm using your build CPchan, if that would help for exactly figuring out the music length.

With the exception of WMA, all formats are gapless that are physically capable of sample accurate playback.

Ogg Vorbis is gapless by default. Also, all lossless codecs are gapless.
