Subject: Testers wanted: up to 50% greater battery life

I have a patch that I think can increase battery life from 20% to 50%.
(So if your battery life is 8 hours now, I'd expect you to get from 9.6
to 12 hours with the patch).

I want to tune the patch a bit, and collect metrics on units other than
my own FM Recorder, so I'm appealling for testers. I'd like to be able
to test against FMs, Recorders, and Players.

Testers should be willing to fully charge their units and continuously
play a single album until the unit turns itself off for lack of power.
Depending on the model and the bit rate of the mp3s played, this will
take from five (5) to fourteen (14) hours per test.

If you'd like to test, please reply to the list, giving an email address
