Re: Battery Life???

Did you fully charge it the first time without taking it out?  That could damage the battery and limit the battery life, if you did do that, there is no solution.  Youll just have to refund and get a new one.

Your battery has come to the end of it's life. You'll need to buy a new battery.

Low battery life even though fully charged

If the MP3 player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My new ipod 8gb has a really short life

If you put your iPod as "shuffle" mode, then it will use up more battery since the unit has to access the hard drive more than usual.

if you put in in "repeat" it will also use more than usual battery.

So, try to put your iPod right down, but your stereo up. Also, types of music files (wmp, mp3, mp4, wav, etc) affect your battery life as well. the higher the bitrates = more battery usage.

Also, try to keep using the iPod until it goes down to absolute 0% and turns itself off. Usually, the red part will last around 8 hours in most cases.

Hope this helped! ^_^ Have a great day~

Dead battery

If you're using the PC to charge your device be sure that the power button/switch if there is one is in the ON position. I know Craig MP3 players require that as well as several others. For some reason just being plugged in isn't enough. They have to be recognized devices and in the on position before a successful charge will take place :)

Good luck!

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.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Battery life poor

You might be useing a bad battery.

Battery life cut down to 7 hours

The thing is, you recharge it too much. Because when you recharge it even though it still has battery power left, it tries to recharge it as much as if the battery was depleted. So, your battery overheats, therefore allowing you 7 hours instead of 20. And yes, it is possible to switch the battery.
