CNET Reveals Pathetic Battery Life In Zune 80
The various Zune players from Microsoft were hot sellers this past Black Friday, but those that purchased the Zune 80 will be disappointed to learn the results of battery life tests conducted by CNET. Microsoft rates the Zune for 30 hours of audio playback with the Wi-Fi turned off, but CNET found in lab tests the players is only capable of about 22 hours
. With the Wi-Fi feature turned on, battery life is further reduced to 18.5 hours. It would be interesting to see the results of battery life tests for solely video playback. What do you think, 5 hours?? While this is disappointing, it'll really tick off those that bought the Zune 80 to know that the iPod Classic 80 GB player plays back a remarkable 45 hours of audio
on a single battery lifetime!
