This is absolutely untrue. Could you point out where you were given this
information if it's on our site so that we may correct it? The X5 (non
L) got approximately 18 and a half hours on a properly executed test,
and the only recorded X5L test on our site is more or less of a
worst-case (several CPU intensive features constantly enabled) and shows
a 22 hour runtime, but doesn't include information on how their battery
performs in the original firmware.
All evidence reported with benchmarks to us indicates that Rockbox gets
equivalent (and in many cases far better) runtime on the Coldfire based
players we support such as the X5 series than the original firmwares.
