Ivo m640 battery life

I am curious to know if when recharging do you have to keep the thing active (screen "on") for it to load a charge and how long is that battery life anyway? it seems like all mp3 players ive owned in the past have at least have the indicator on to let me know the battery is or fully charged. this is also the first mp3 playter ive seen where you can still use it while it is charging...i think this is possibly the worst mp3 player ive ever gotten.

Battery Charge Problem with Doro WT91X/PRO


Rechargeable Li-Ion batteries have a 14-18 month life expectancy. If replaceable, you should replace them. If not, you should buy a new radio. Note: Exercising the battery once a month by simply charging it, and then leaving the radio off, will add to the life of your new battery. It helps to keep the chemical active in the battery.
Best regards.

How to make the battery life of a rechargeable electronic device last longer.


Have you noticed how the more you use a rechargeable appliance, the shorter it's battery life is? I don't know the exact reason, but what makes sense in my mind is that if you let the battery run out over, and over, and over, there is a little bit of the charge that you cannot recover and use, thus making the life of the battery shorter, thus giving you less time with the appliance. I have experienced this with my first Nintendo DS, which after letting the battery die over and over, would charge for hours on end and only last for a little bit more than half an hour. The way to stop this from happening is quite simple. I have a second generation Ipod, which i have had for about 3 years, and it still has almost full battery life. The trick is to keep the battery more than halfway charged all the time. The only, I repeat, the ONLY time you want the battery to run out is the first use. Yes, that is the opposite of what I just said, but it works. Trust me. I bought a new DS and used the same tactic, though i dont know if it was more than half a battery, and I have had it for almost 4 years, and the only thing wrong with it is the right trigger. I've dropped it several times on the trigger, and that is why sometimes it doesn't work. So, next time you buy a rechargeable appliance, keep this in mind.

THE BATTERY DOESN'T RECHARGE.I USED TO KEEP THE PLAYER PLUGGED CONSTANTLY WHEN SWITCHING IT OFF SO THAT THE BATTERY WOULD NOT RUN OUT OF STEAM..


by keeping the player constantly plugged in when of will have seriously shortened the battery life, rechargeable batteries ( exept the very latest ones) perform best by charging then using until fully discharged and charging again. this will ensure your battery lasts a long time, constantly charging a half charged battery will shorten the batteries life.

IVo-Sound m640 MP3 player - How to I randomize all songs?


Unfortunately with this mp3 player, it seems all the songs have to be in the same folder to be able to shuffle/randomly play through your songs. If you put all your songs in one folder, then you can randomize the songs.

Screen says battery is full, but wont turn on


I read somewhere that even with a functional lyra, when it displays "battery full", you should keep charging for another hour. This is said to extend battery life and give you an extra 2-3 hours of power. Either this is perfectly normal, or it indicates that the battery reading tends to be inaccurate. In any case, try leaving it charging even after it gives you the message. Another thing to consider is, how long has it been in the box? I'm not sure about lithiums, but most rechargeables I know live longer when used. Live it alone for too long and you shorten it's life. Could be good to get a second opinion on this battery thing though. If there's a warranty, don't let it waste. Good luck
