Battery drainage can be caused by many ways. Although if the manufacturer states that it can play 'up to' eight hours, then it's possible with heavy usage, bright screens and powering on & off the device may possibly shorten the battery life.
If your mp3 player has the option, you can always dim the screen brightness, let it go into blank screen after few seconds, and do little to conserve the battery. It's not too bad considering you're only one an hour short. I'd be concerned if you were getting less than half of what the manufacturer states.
let your battery run out by leaving you mp3 player play as long as it can....then open up the back of the mp3 player take out the battery and put the battery a freezer for an out or 2 then let it sit out for a day then put it back in the sansa and recharge it and it should either fix it or help add more life span to the charge

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.

The first time you charge a battery, you must charge it for at least 16 hours, otherwise the battery builds up a memory, and it will not charge further than that. Try buying a new battery and charging it for at least 16 hours, if this was not done the first time. If this was done, or you are using a new battery, it might be that the battery connector is faulty and needs to be replaced
