    HD + Battery life

    Doreenpv

      Anyone know for sure (with average useage) how long the battery life span will be?

      I think it was a huge mistake not to have the option for purchasing a back up battery.

      When I purchased my device I think I was told about 3 yrs.

          For devices with rechargeable batteries, I normally expect between 500 to 750 charge cycles. About two years if you charge it every day. Also note that this is "cycles" -- while LiIon don't  have a known memory effect you are still doing a chemical transformation each charge. Better to run it for most of its capacity then to keep topping it up.
