I got 23 hours out of mine the one time I did a battery test. That was on shuffle with 192VBR mp3s. The 80GB iPod Videos (gen 5.5) have a larger capacity battery than the 30GB version.
I love my Clip+ too but I like having my complete music library with me when I travel. J3 isn't rockbox-able and I need crossfeed, D2+ even with 32GB card is too small. So 'the-DAP-whose-name-we-dare-not-speak' has become the one for me. Horses for courses :-)
edit: and of course, with rockbox, no iTunes.
