I just completed a battery rundown. Conditions were as such.....internal memory plus a 1GB microSD card, shuffle all, ReplayGain engaged with no pregain added, all files LAME MP3, of varying bitrates but averaging 248kbps overall, volume about two-thirds into headphones overnight and boombox aux-in jack after I woke up, brightness and backlight set at minimum, and EQ was set at Normal.

It takes a few clicks to get to the info screen where you see the battery percentage, as opposed to the icon on the main screen. This was done 6 or 7 times. All told, player shut down due to low battery warning exactly at the 12 hour mark.
FLAC at the same time...

it shut down 5 minutes before the 7 hour mark.
So you must really be lucky...

I was referring to the Clip+. I wouldn't be surprised the Zip has poorer battery life, what with it's full-color screeen and all.

Great!!! That means a Cowon is an even better choice than I'd thought. So more than 1 playlist can be created? And can these playlists be synced over to the comp as well?

I see I'll have to get a little quality time in tonight with my X9 now,...

Woah wait... i think we got our wires a bit crossed.
I thought u meant u could only add one song at a time to a playlist, i was saying u can add entire folders and subfolders on the fly as long as u add via [Folders] rather than Artist or Album etc. The max 'playlist' (is 1) for number of files for this is 256 (in this playlist)
There is only ONE on the fly playlist, want a new playlist.. delete the old, and no saving of playlists (it calls them favourites) that i have found yet.

BUT.. on le pc i can create as many playlists as i like using winamp and my c2 and it plays them all... (at least im sure it can... might have to dbl check that... bruce going crazy n'shit, might be getting sansa and cowon confused... senior member my ass, senior mentally for sure).

I will say anybody that claims 12 hours without Rockbox is either smoking some funny stuff, or using 128kbps files...lol
I got 16 hours with my Clip V2 verses 10.5 with the Clip+ both running the OF and LAME -v2. I have no idea why they're so different, its the same hardware in both and battery life in rockbox is great with both.

The C2, D2, D2+, i9, S9, J3, O2, and X9 all do playlists the same. I've owned all but the C2,...respect my authoritah!!!


I kinda know what they can & can't do. So The exception would be the Android models,...and they suck so I'll PASS!!!
