Subject: Re: Constant usage=damage?
From: Justin Heiner (

The only problem that I can see is that the batteries will not hold a charge
after a while. This isn't a problem if you only use it while plugged in, but
since the Archos Player constantly charges the device, the batteries WILL get
worn out after a fair amount of time.

As for the unit itself, I can't see much bad happening to it from leaving it
plugged in.
