Help Battery indicator on Clip Zip

Just got a new Clip Zip and the level of battery indicator on the device
is incredibly hard to read see compared to the bright yellow
of my former Clip +/ and it's not just my poor old eyes, a young friend with 20/20 vision feel just the same. And since Windows never seems to
reflect the true level of battery....

For sure I will charge it once a day to be on the safe side....But still, is
there a chance a new firmware could correct this? There must
be others who have the same problem? The menu, on the other
hand is much easier to read than on the previous models, Hallelujah!

I have other questions but I guess I should address them with
a different thread. Hello--I'm new--and thanks!

There likely won't be any more firmware updates for this model, as SanDisk's development team are working on the next model due out out in a couple months. After it's release, their efforts will be concentrated on this new player's support and bug fixes.

SanDisk, like many other companies had to pare down their dev. teams to bare bones when the economy went south a few years ago. They're still operating under limited manpower, so "enhancements" just don't get the priority they used to.

I replied to this (and your other concerns) in your similar post over on the SanDisk forums.

Did you know that you can get a percentage reading of the battery's charge level on the device itself by going into Settings > Systems Settings > Info?

No it's not perfect, but it's better than the battery icon or depending on Windows for an accurate reading.
