Subject: Re: Problem loading Rockbox into Recorder 20 V2
From: Andrew Glass (

V2 DOES NOT use AA batteries - it has an internal
lithion-ion battery - not replaceable! Said "to last
the life of the device". Yeah, right. One of the main
reasons I bought the Archos was so that I could
replace the batteries on long day trips.
