Default Spinn : Japanese version

Can anyone can read Japanese? this picture Says something about the battery. I hope it talks about a removable battery on the Spinn but I cant read it.

Moreover, the thickness is changed also. Japanese version is 13.5 mm but Korean version is 10.7 mm. This change may relate to the battery, I guess.


the whole info : http://www.iriver.co.jp/estore/spinn/

some information from moveplayer.com

I seriously doubt they would release a bigger/more capacity battery just for Japan. The picture looks like a charger or a battery pack AA extender.

It calls for pre-order of Spinn and the buyers can get an "external" Lithium battery pack as gift. It does not mention that the battery of Spinn is removable.

So with this you can expand your batterylife by attaching this unit to your Spinn? Sounds nice if you are for a long time not near a power supply. Or are such devices already for sale?

I had one in 06' for my ZVM. And I saw them before I got one. They are very nice for long trips and watching alot of video. With an Archos or a larger Cowon I would definitly get one of these.

By what amount does such a pack extend the batterylife? Are we talking about another 5 hours of video or 25 hours of audio, or can we expect much more?
(One of the things that the Spinn lacks compared to the S9 is long batterylife, so that's why I'm asking)

Mine was 4 AA batteries. I never really tested it but I've got to figure that it would last quite a bit longer than the internal battery. Usually I only used it in emergencys until I got to a plug.

idk what you guys are reading, cause I can translate it a little. Its says if you buy it from the displayed dates (12.12.2008 - 01.13.2009) you will be able to get a pair of Philips SHE9800 earphones. But you must buy it as a 8gb, cause it comes in a value pack for 9800 yen. (Idk the exchange rate, sorry.)
Nothing said about the battery. And no, its not removable.
If you want to know some specs on it, here:

*Music playback: 25-26.2 hours
*Video playback: 5-6.1 hours
*Screen: AMOLED Touchscreen

There. And, yes, I'm an official Spinn owner.

The difference in dimensions is that some measure the flat body, and some measure the spinwheel to get maximum thickness. It's kind of thick as players go these days, so I understand why some choose the thinner dimension.

Ehh. True. But not all the time.
My friend decided to go with the old school Zune (fat one) instead of getting the G2 Zune, cause he believed that it had a better battery life. Man, was he wrong xD
