Re: iPod 5G gets *two hours* battery with Rockbox?

I hear the orriginal OS is something like 20 hours, so am not really sure
here. I can't say for sure, but I think the rockbox firmware gets around
10-11 hours? Can anyone confirm this? I could always do an overnight battery
benchmark, if anyone is curious. My config file is set to no backlight, five
second anti skip. SHould the anti skip buffer be put up a bit more? Or would
this use more battery life?

Thanks, Not really sure what else to suggest here, Doug. I'm using the aug
3rd build on my ipod atm.

Have a good day from Tyler C. Wood!
