Subject: An X5L battery question

An X5L battery question

HI, Everyone,

I have looked about in the list archives, and am I correct to assume that with the X5/X5Ls, the battery life when using Rockbox is now comparable to the battery life with the original iAudio firmware? It's difficult to say exactly how much time I get with my battery, however I think it's about half of what it should be. I've noticed that when the battery level reaches about 60%, it suddenly plunges down to 0, and I must recharge. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm trying to decide what I should do about this problem. I have already customize my settings to use as little power as possible. For example, I turned off the back light.
I'm currently using the build from January 9. Does anyone have any suggestions?
