How long before battery indicator starts going down?
I just got a Walkman (NWZ-E463.) I am concerned about the battery level indicator and/or battery.

I mainly have the Walkman to listen to podcasts. After hooking it up to my computer three times to add some podcasts, about ten minutes each time, the battery indicator is at full bar. I then disconnected it from my PC. So far, I have played podcasts on the Walkman about 8 hours or more and the battery level is still showing full bar. Now I am playing FM radio (over an hour so far) on it now to see if the battery indicator will go down.

I assume the battery indicator should be down some by now. I am concerned that the battery level is not correctly showing on the indicator and/or the indicator is bugged.

Shouldn't the indicator have gone down by now? And doesn't it go down in stages (partial bar lower and lower)?

Weird - right after posting this, the first bar went away. I guess the battery indicator only shows 25% increments, so it took ~10+ hours to show the first 25% down.

That sounds about right. 10 hours = 25%, so 40 hours total.
