on recFM, charging is done in hardware, nothing rockbox can do wrong,
so yes, I suppose it is.

hum. I think so.

Well, these kinds of values "at least 16h" certainly do not count for
intelligent chargers like the archos is. The circuit is able to detect
whether the batttery is full or not.

If your battery capacity setting is correct (as you said), then the
19h prognosis should be right. The fact it charged in 6 hours just
lets me think it's been in a good shape when you got it.
