In other news, the batteries in my Archos Jukebox Recorder have been getting rather weak lately, to the point where the unit would run out of power after two days of sitting idle. So today I pulled them out and replaced them with four new NiMH AA cells I picked up at the local electronics shop (1650mAh each, a slight upgrade from the 1500 the unit ships with; I could have gone with 2000s, though I don't usually use it for that long between recharges). The total cost was just under A$16.

Let's see you do that with your iPod.

Maybe, though it would have a more unwieldy shape, with that thing strapped to it.

Anyway, it's not like the Archos is particularly heavy or bulky.

I bought the belkin battery pack thing when i bought my ipod, 'cause i had some > 8 hour train journeys ahead of me on my o/s holiday. It worked fine. The whole thing lives in my bag anyway, so I don't care about the increase in size.

(I balked at spending $180 on that f'ing media reader, though).

Though the iPod batteries would cost considerably more than 4 NiMH AAs, no?
