Try setting the battery MA level at 2200, or 23, which ever one it is in the
I think the battery level is more of a reflection of the time it has been
used, not the actual battery level.
So if it is left on for long times without being shut off, it might be
indicating that it is lower than it really is.
At least that's the way I think it works.

Subject: Question about battery power
I'm new to the list and I have a question. I've loaded the rockbox firmware
on my Archos v2 recorder. Since then, I seem to have extreme poor battery
power management. For example, I charged the unit a little over a week ago.
Today I was listening to the unit. I checked the power, the unit said 34%.
By the way, I'm blind, so I'm taking the voice's word for the power level.
Anyway, 10 minutes later, I happened to check again and the power dropped to
7%. I checked this in the rockbox menus under "info" and Rockbox "info"
So my question is this. Is this an accurate power indicator? If so, is there
a particular configuration that I could set to conserve battery power? I
found a menu which refers to milliamps and I could adjust this menu but I
wasn't really sure of what I was adjusting. I exited out of the menu with
out saving any settings. Any Ideas?
