I am 98% sure it was off. I also had another alarming drainage rate
story. Last Sunday, I had the unit, which I thought should be almost
charged (I hadn't charged it since the day before, but I only had about
2 hours of play time on that charge.) I had it in the car, and after a
lockup (the car was sitting still in a parking lot), I checked the
battery level, and was mildly surprised that it was at 36%. I ran some
errands, getting gas, and a couple of other things, maybe 4 or 5 songs,
and checked the battery again, and it was down to 25%.

Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking
about might be another airplane going in the opposite direction.
Reliable sources also report that mountains have been known to hide
out in clouds.
