Less than 5hrs battery life for my Iaudio X5? Why?

by todamax15 / April 13, 2006 1:43 PM PDT

I have a 30gb iaudio x5 and the battery dies after less than 5hrs of use everytime after I recharged it to full. I was wondering if it could be b/c I clocked the player to high bass output or if there's something wrong w/ the battery?

What are your daily routines with it? How long is the backlit on? Do you watch video?

In reply to: Um..

if you use a lot of the sound checks, like EQ, bassboost, and all those things, that will lower the battery. also, songs at higher bitrates take more juice to play. video might do it, as well as backlight, like the above guy said. also, if you change tracks a lot, that'll contribute. 14 hours is continuous playback, playing 128 kbps music, no backlight on, no interruptions.
