What type of battery does this unit take?


Hi Gilley

Your question will be hard to answer without more specifics. For most Apple products - iPod or iTouch, there will be a battery that is specific to the model, and may rank anywhere from easy to mind-blowingly difficult to replace. (I'm replacing the battery in a Gen4 iTouch right now. If you ever have the chance to do that, don't)

Other players will have other sorts of batteries - there's a trade-off of ease of battery swapping, battery life, and size/weight added by the battery.

If you can re-post your question with more specifics about your MP2 player, we may be able to help you better.

Happy Holidays

My wife's 30Gb black iPod is roughly about 4 years old, and was purchased new. She's experiencing reduced battery life, and sometimes the unit will not charge when plugged into an AC adapter. About how...


Yes, it sounds like it's time to replace the battery. You can buy them online and do it yourself if you are technically minded. You can see a few Youtube videos showing how it's done.

Otherwise, there are repair sites you can send it to for replacing the battery.

Battery life is not good. please advise.


Hello,

has the battery life span been better when you first started using the player?

It is advise able that you replace the battery of the player, that is if it has been lasting long before.

Or you could dispose the player and go for a better one that the battery life span would be better.

I would also advice further that you should not go for an MP3 that has an in-built battery. Go for he one that the battery would easily be replaced.

I wish you all the best.

Under a full charge the mp3 shows only 1/2 charge3d


I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

How long is the charge lasting? If you're only getting half of the battery life you use to get, then the unit needs to be repaired. I can do more research into your model, but normally there isn't a way to change the battery charge display. Please let me know if you're still getting full battery life even though the display is only showing half.

I'll use the information you provide to assist you further. I look forward to hearing from you.

My battery won't hold a charge


Let me put it this way - you are not supposed to replace your battery - it will void your warranty. Call sansa and find out if you can get an in-warranty replacement. If you want to be a DIY daredevil, you can twist the clip until the area behind the clip pops out - read the battery specs and order a battery online. But really, I would get an in-warrnty replacement or buy a new one - the price has dropped from 60-70 last year to about $25-30 this year.

In order:
*The battery life specs listed by the manufacturers are based on ideal laboratory conditions, and are almost never right. (You'll also notice that you don't actually have a full 8GB's, and that it doesn't take as long to charge the unit as the manual suggests. And the big one - this player will not fit as many songs on it as the manual suggests.)
*Four hours is not unusual. Sounds about right.
*The battery is not replaceable on this particular unit.
* If you can listen to your songs, they are formatted correctly. Mp3-format songs take up less space than wma's, so you can fit more mp3 on a player than wma's, usually.

The player seems to me to be operating normally.

Insignia Pilot 80G MP3 player battery life


Hey General Chao,

Unfortunately, battery life can largely depend on how any given device is used - the louder the speakers or the brighter the LCD screen, the shorter a battery will maintain its charge. The 25-hour battery life quoted by the manufacturer may simply be an estimate based on the lowest possible settings for player volume, backlight and display settings. This means that the average user will probably encounter a significantly shorter battery life, especially when using maximum volume settings to compensate for ambient noise or other interference.

If you're still concerned, remember that you can always contact the manufacturer for further assistance at their toll-free hotline: 877-467-4289. Should your MP3 player be suffering from an actual hardware failure, Insignia may be able to provide you with additional trouble-shooting support or repairs if necessary.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Short battery life


Get a replacement from Philips if it seems abnormal and you are still under warranty. 8-9 hours is normal battery life for this unit - the product specs are "ideal" - not relaistic. No way to dim this unit.
