Recently my Archos Jukebox v1 started playing up quite seriously.
Soon after, I noticed that it was not holding a charge.
Being that I anticipated this when I purchased the unit, I realised my
batteries are a couple of years old and after reading this:
I popped down to my local branch of Dixons (well, actually it was in the
next town across, but I was there for an interview anyway) and purchased

I wouldn't ike to guess what playback time I am getting from them, but it
must be nearly 20hrs of flawless playback. My MP3 collection is all at

The charger is rated second only to a Maha charger (allegedly the best) and
the batteries (although the 2500's have not been specifically tested yet)
are level pegging with PowerEx as being the best available.
