RE : FM Recorder battery?

Hmm I dont think that the battery they put in the FM Recorder
is very bad... Most of the time I have to recharge my unit
after having used it for 12H...
But if your charged your FM Recorder with Rockbox I think
it may be damaged since Rockbox doesn't know how to manage a
LiIon battery...
