Default A recent battery life observation


Have there been any changes to rockbox recently which could have increased the battery life on the Sansa E200? Has anybody else noticed a large increase in battery life?

I've been playing around with LossyFLAC and I've also been reading about the battery issues that the Sansa View seems to have.

Bearing the above in mind, I've recently tested an album encoded in LossyFLAC (approx average 380Kbps), I've kept all the default settings except bass which is up to 7db and I've turned down the LCD brightness to 1. I've also used my own text based WPS. My findings – FLAC is now giving me 16-17Hrs. OGG & MP3 used to be around 11.5/12.5Hrs. I've done 2 battery benchmark tests but both times the file has been corrupt (I think its because I've only got 1.89Mb space left).

I will do more testing and try and get some decent battery benchmark files comparing MP3/OG & FLAC but has anyone else noticed anything similar?
