Default Battery life for S739!

I'm curious to know how long can s739 battery life last?

For mine, settings for equalizer - heavy, VPT - studio, volume - 12, VPT - studio, now left 1 bar after playing for total of 9.5hours from 08/07/09 to 11/07/09.

Is this normal????????????????????????????

Bear in mind that having 1 bar showing could mean that the battery is about 45% full not 25%.

Using the sound enhancements will reduce the battery life although I couldn't tell you by how much. Also do you have a screensaver set? Mine is set to blank and switches off after 15 seconds. You can also set the brightness pretty low but it's still legible outside- something that annoyed me about the Clip.

I think Sonys have pretty good battery life in general-I love the instant-on feature.

Let the battery drain COMPLETELY, keep restarting it till it no longer responds. Then recharge it and see if it's more accurate. Only do this once BTW. Sometimes the battery meter needs to be re-calibrated, and this tends to solve that issue nicely.

Yeah mine is also set to blank and switches off after 15 seconds. Ok, will try to drain out all batteries completely then recharging it to see the results. Currently, the battery still shows 1 bar after an hour of listening to music.
