Help Video stored on Player or SD Card re Battery life?

So, would it be more beneficial since video is more battery intensive than music to store all your vids on the internal memory instead of the card since accessing files from the card drains the battery quicker anyways?

You may see a slightly faster drop when videos are played off the SD card - but with 10hrs playtime who really cares if you may lose an hr or so?. Personally, I do exactly what you ask as all vids are on the internal memory. But, the reason is not for battery life. I use MTP so I sync all music to the external card so I can merely have all the folders in 1 location (so I can easily use the file/folder browsing to play whole cd's by themselves without having to use id3 tags). I have used the sd card in the past for vids though and got well over 8hrs (+ quite a few hrs of tunes!!!). Never really did a formal test as I like to keep me baby topped off!
