I remember someone doing tests where the content was MP3, WMA, Wav or other. They found that some encoding resulted in more battery time. Also they could stretch time by dimming the display and shutting it off asap.
Okay, I ordered a Toshiba Gigabeat S 30 off Amazon.com and loved it. The only problem was that I was strangely getting about 4 hours of battery life for audio.
So I exchanged for another one. I've only been using it for music for roughly 3 hours and the battery says its half way dead! This shouldn't be at all.
Toshiba says the battery should last 12 hours for audio. This is really starting to bug me. I don't want to keep getting my Gigabeat replaced.
So any comments, suggest, word of wisdom? Does anyone else have the same problem. Is the Gigabeat just like this? Please let me know what I should do guys. Thanks.
