That is too short, period. If your unit is okay, and your (standard)
batteries are okay, it should run for about 10 hours. I do so, daily.
However, there are some quirks with the Rockbox charger (i.e.,
charging while Rockbox is running) that are still being sorted out.
For that reason I always use the charger screen (i.e., switch the unit
off, then plus in the charger cable). After a while the unit is fully
charged and capable of its 10-hour duty.
Disclaimer: that's how it works for me.
