Subject: IAudio X5: Feature, Bug, or just me? (Battery life/battery level report)

IAudio X5: Feature, Bug, or just me? (Battery life/battery level report)

Hey y'all,

I noticed starting sometime last year, probably after the second most
recent upheaval (August?) something odd in my IAudio X5. I wonder if
it's just me, just my battery, or if something else is going on?

First battery life seems to have dropped dramatically. Where I'm
pretty sure for the first while I was getting aroun 10-12 hours, I'm
lucky to get 4 or 5, and they'd better be continuous, which brings up
the other anomaly.

After a battery is charged, I turn the player on and get a battery
level. Lately, it's been like 60% but has been, in past builds, as
high as 72%. over the next several minutes, this level creeps up until
it gets well into the 80's or 90's as the player plays, giving me an
estimate of something over five hours. If I turn the player off and
come back later, if the level reports at 10-15%, for instance, I have
to wait a while for the meter to go up to 40, 50, 60% before I start
playing a file, else it might just quit instead. Anyone else noticing
this, or do I have something strange going?
