Subject: Battery FAQ #12
From: David Reis (dlr_at_CBORD.com)
Is the listing below in error???
In our testing we found the following results:
HDD off, backlight off, idle 94 mA
HDD off, backlight off, play 97 mA
HDD off, backlight on, idle 129 mA
HDD off, backlight on, play 131 mA
HDD on, backlight on, play 230 mA
HD on, reading, backlight off ~ 600 mA
HD spin up before read max 800 mA
Is "HDD on,reading, backlight off 600 mA"
"HDD on, backlight on, play 230mA"
What is the difference between "play" and "reading" ??
I am trying to figure out if a spare battery pack (12 V 17.2AH )
will have enough power to charge my Archos for 3 weeks (Grand Canyon
