Subject: Re: [JB6000] Charging Bigger Battery than before
From: Mike Holden (rockbox_at_mikeholden.uklinux.net)
Date: 2003-10-04


The playing duration that is displayed is calculated based on a value you
set in the settings.

Press F1->General Settings->System->Battery Capacity, and change the value
to the same as your batteries.

Note that this value soes not affect the charging in any way. It only
affects the calculation for estimated runtime.

I hope this answers your question. Your English is far better than my
French - c'est vrai!
