"How long should the battery be lasting" is a rather subjective
question. It depends on your battery's condition. It should now last the
same time or more than with the Iriver firmware. With a relatively new
stock battery, you might get 17 hours or so; check the IriverRuntime
wiki page for actual tests.

Did I not read something about the fact that you need to fool the battery
capacity read out in order to get an more accurate figure? Of course that
doesn't mean that a full charge on a good battery will give you the 17 hours
but it would be nice to be able to get the run time info.
