Subject: Re: charge and holding on fm recorder
From: Justin Heiner (jheiner_at_yahoo.com)
Date: 2003-04-04


Deep discharge and trickle are unavailable for the FM Recorder, as it uses a hardware charging method. Basically, leave the charger plugged in overnight and chances are it will be charged. Rockbox has no influence on the charging of the unit.
