Battery Life on gigabeat!!

Today when getting in my car to go to work, I started it up and heard David Bowie's "Changes" on the radio, then it finished and went to another song, and I had to look down and it was coming from my Gigabeat. This was at about 12:00 noon, and it had been playing continously through the night and day since last night at 11:00pm!! I left it running and it was still running at 1:00pm when I plugged it into my PC's USB port to charge. So 14+ hours and it was still running. It played over 200 songs, a mix of mp3 and m4a. I think I have it set to light the screen for 5seconds before and after song changes, so the screen was on for about 40 minutes total. I think the spec is 16hours on the battery, so Rockbox didn't do any harm!
