Subject: Re: FM Recorder Battery Issue
From: Henry Mitchell (hmitchell_at_fastmail.fm)
Date: 2003-10-09


Well, after charging all night, it showed 75%, so I gave this a try. I
had to push awfully hard to get it to 4.00V (it was around 3.75V). It
didn't change the battery meter, until about 30 seconds later, it shows
fully charged.

I was hoping that this was the culprit, since sometimes physical shocks
(like a bump in a car, or putting the unit in my pocket) would trigger
the shutdown. But honestly, I'm not convinced that this is the real
issue. Maybe Chuck can report on what happens with his unit?

Full charge should show around 4.00V when unplugged.
