Default Fuze's Battery Life

Hey everyone, just a quick question. I just recently got a Sansa View as gift and I'm liking it alot, however, the only thing that bugs me about it is its poor battery life. I usually average out to get a little less than 10 hours playback, even when I hard-shutdown the thing. And I still have the receipt and everything and I'm still within the return period, so I was just wondering if it might be worth it to switch to a Fuze. So what's the battery life on the Fuze like? More than the View? Thanks for your help!

The View has better battery life and better video playback. As for your battery issue on the View, you could have got a bad View because my View gets around 30 to 32 hours with audio about 6 to 7 hours with video.

Try lowering the brightness. You will see a HUGE difference.

Haha. Well...I guess your view is kinda broken. Even though the Fuze is inferior battery-wise, it has a lot less bugs than the view, and not to mention, the fuze will support ogg and FLAC audio files later next week via a firmware update.
