Subject: FM Recorder battery?
From: Andrew Cohen (acjunk2_at_yahoo.com)
So, when I first got my FM recorder, it got about 5
hours of continuous play off the battery before it
died. Now it only gets about 2-3 hours before it dies
(after a full charge from the charger it came with).
The only thing is, I did install a daily build of
rockbox fm on jan 23 & jan 27 2003, but I have since
removed the ajbrec.ajz file (but not the .rockbox
dir). Is there any way that the rockbox could've
damaged my battery/unit? Or is this just a really
shoddy battery they put in it. It is now totally
useless for any long flights or day trips away from my
The only other thing I will say is that I did buy a
Radio Shack 6-volt/1000 miliAmp car charger (which
works fine), but my battery problems started well
before I started using the car charger.
Any comments on the subject at all will be
appreciated!!! Should I send my unit back to Archos?
Thanks a lot!!!
