It could have gone more, but I needed the device for the day, so I ended up taking it and the cable with me.

Edit.
Now i see you have 4gb
In my country 4gb is far expensive than 8gb.
Maybe 8gb version have battery problem, becouse of various problems
Software which drain battery faster or battery itself.
Who knows.
In Serbia my transcend 8gb is cheaper than in canada.
For me anbelievable.

That might be the case. You should send them an email regarding the case. I believe the email was service@transcend.com.tw. They do respond back. I sent them a praise email about their product and they thanked me. To say the least, i was surprised.

I think you should get warrenty service.With mp3 playback i think one should expect atleast 17 hours of playback.You battery backup is bit abnormal.Also keep in mind that warrenty for battery is valid for only 6 months.So get your mp3 player exchanged fast.

firmware is 1.00.09
Now i see.
Last time my battery was on second indicator , now it is on third, and i havent recharged it.It have more than last night
in my country, you must to give full 2 years of warrenty, it is law.
But under this condidion. First 6 months you are not obligate to prove anything. After that, you are obligate to prove that you have use it normal, and that manfunctionality is not your guilt.
It doasant mather what transcend think about it.
NOw i reading Maximum playback time achived with screensaver set to blank and lurics sync disabled.
This last, i think i didnt have.
Do you see on the box anything about 6 months warrenty for battery.

And just one more thing.I have annother transcend mp860 for one day.
I have replaced it, becouse, i have problem with headphones sennheiser cx150, contact problem.
It is same thing with this curent device, but it is sennheiser problem, not transcend.
Other headphones work properly
So my problem, is that it is a bit unconfortably for me to go in the shop for second time, becouse, i of luck of my credibility, becouse of my first reclamation.

I will test it in next days, becouse, now i have i thing 6 full charge recharge cycle, and than i have maybe only three cycle.

tanuj. It is not accidentally that 8gb version is a lot cheaper than 4gb version.
Maybe tehnomarket (seller) know sometnihg that we dont know.

8GB VERSION IS CHEAPER THAN 4GB,,THAT IS COMPLETLY ACCIDENTIAL

I recommwnd u to upgrade your mp860 with latest firmware 1.00.12.Upgrading with this firmware will increase battery backup.Goto transcend website www.transcendusa.com and then navigate to download center select your product name and your product code and then download the latest firmware.Upgrading instruction is attached with firmware.

After upgrading the firmware, leave your player on untill battery completly discharge and then full recharge it.Do this process 3-4 times and iam sure your battery backup will increase.

You are pretty sure about all these.
I dont think that i will get better battery life.
But i will do it anyway.
I have not folow procedure about formating battery .3x12h of charging and fully discharging becouse it is lipolimer battery, and not nikl metal.
I thing that i have not made mistake about it.

MP860 have lithium battery like everyother mp3 player.Although many peoples and tech expert says that full recharge and discharge donot help to improve the performance of lithium battery but in practicle world it is just opposite.Full recharge discharge cycle in every 1 months will help to improve battery backup

When i purchased my mp860,i was also getting around 14-16 hours of battery with mp3 playback but after firmware upgrade and few recharge discharge cycle i managed to achive around 18-21 hours of battery backup.One i even achived 25 hours with low volume and brightness
