Default Battery Report

One of the better features about the beloved D2 is it's impressive battery life, rated at 52 hours of audio and 10 hours of video. Now of course these specs are going to be the ones you get under optimal conditions. I did a test of my own, as I do with all my players, and here's what I got:

Files:
All Mp3 VBR V1 files
Mix between SD card and onboard memory.
Volume set at 30.
Sometimes I would play around with it ex: search for songs, skip around etc.
Set on shuffle.
All Jeteffects on.

I stopped twice in the time period, and I got a total of approximately 41 hours of playback time. Well short of the time they stated, but impressive nonetheless.


I'd be interested to hear what everyone else can squeeze out of their D2's.

52 hours is definately the maximum rated battery life... i.e internal memory only, doubt any jeteffects, no screen use etc. Battery life is far beyond anything else on the market anyways

Volume at 30 is a bit loud... (i normaly listen around 10-15) So i think you can get it much closer too the 52 hours.

i agree, it is very loud. i haven't gone above 12 yet for volume, but I just decided on 30 because it's a little over half volume.

My test via internal memory under my normal conditions over six days, including 12 power on and offs, multiple album changes average bit rate 192-320kbps volume 22, yielded 40.5 hours battery flashing.
Same off sd card only was 25.5 hours
