Default Fiio E5 Charging Information

Ok, this is probably going to sound like the most retarded question of all time but I might as well ask anyways.

If your using your E5 in conjunction with your computer/laptop and you have it plugged in via USB but your playing music through it (have the audio components connected as well), will it draw down the battery or will it simply bypass the battery and use the direct current from the USB?

Note! I haven't tried doing this yet so I'm not sure if I can even listen to music through it while its charging but I just figured I'd ask before I potentially ruin the battery life.

With mine, it seems to run just from the battery. Now I don't charge mine from the computer to begin with, I use a wall charger(whether or not that makes a difference), but it seems that I can listen away while it charges, but once the battery is topped, the charging stops.

If I wait an hour, listening all the while, unplug the charger, then plug it back in, the cycle will resume. I have read that some people hear electronic "noise" when theirs is plugged in to their computers while they listen, but as I use the wallcharger, I've never noticed that.

Maybe they have the music playing from the computer... I know I here plenty of electrical noise coming out when I have headphones in!

That could be it.....my computer's audio goes into my stereo, and that's where my headphones plug in, so maybe that's why I don't hear the noise.

Ha ha ha! I agree yeah I've noticed a bit of electrical noise sometimes when I have the line in directly into my headphone jack on my computer at work. I keep checking my cellphone to see if I have a text message

Yeah. I should really buy a system I saw on a buy/sell site for $90 bucks to aleviate that problem. But at current if I bought it I'd have way to much audio equipment and not enough places to put it all

Wow. If that's your only worry - I wouldn't be worrying at all!!

My worry is wondering how I'll pay for it all!!
