Default Battery life not what I expected...

Recently, I got myself a 8gb Cowon j3. It's pretty awesome.

There's only one thing I'm not too crazy about:

The battery life.

The manufacturer claims you can get up to 64 hours of battery life, and even with all the bragging I've heard, I still didn't even expect that. If I got somewhere between 30-35 hours, I was cool.

But I'm not even getting that, I'm not getting anything near that.

At work, on a full charge, it died about 5 hours into my shift :/

I charged it again overnight and decided to test it today. I set it to play all my music at random, the display at always on and at brightness 1 (because I HATE having to press the button to activate the screen every so often), and volume 15.

This time I got about 6 hours and 15 minutes out of it before it died.

Is this a common problem? Is it a defective battery? Or is this normal behavior for the battery with such usage?

If it's that last one, I might have to return this thing if possible. I've gotten much better battery life out of my older players (Zune 30 and Zune 120) and even my dinky little GoGear Vibe gives me better battery life...
