RE: Question about battery power

Thanks for answering so quickly. What you responded with makes sence given
what I'm noticing. I can turn off the unit and when I pick it back up
durning my lunch break and power it up, the battery level is roughly the
same as when I switched it on earlier in the morning. I have a couple more
questions to make sure I understand.
Does this MA adjustment actually allow the user to adjust how much power is
used? Would I be correct in assuming that if I adjust this setting lower, I
can extend my play time?

I've got to say. I purchased this unit, and as a blind person I was able to
figure it out using some common sence and logic, neither of which I have in
great amounts. But after finding rockbox, and finding the voice options, I
realize how powerful this unit is. I think its pretty awsome.
Good work yall.
Thank you

Try setting the battery MA level at 2200, or 23, which ever one it is in the
menus. I think the battery level is more of a reflection of the time it has
been used, not the actual battery level. So if it is left on for long times
without being shut off, it might be indicating that it is lower than it
really is. At least that's the way I think it works. Glenn

Subject: Question about battery power

I'm new to the list and I have a question. I've loaded the rockbox firmware
on my Archos v2 recorder. Since then, I seem to have extreme poor battery
power management. For example, I charged the unit a little over a week ago.
Today I was listening to the unit. I checked the power, the unit said 34%.
By the way, I'm blind, so I'm taking the voice's word for the power level.
Anyway, 10 minutes later, I happened to check again and the power dropped to
7%. I checked this in the rockbox menus under "info" and Rockbox "info" So
my question is this. Is this an accurate power indicator? If so, is there a
particular configuration that I could set to conserve battery power? I found
a menu which refers to milliamps and I could adjust this menu but I wasn't
really sure of what I was adjusting. I exited out of the menu with out
saving any settings. Any Ideas?
