We have had a few complaints that the battery doesn't seem to hold a charge. But we have evaluated several iTravl batteries and also compared them against the batteries in other devices and find the batteries hold a charge just fine.
What you can do:
- Keep a spare battery or two with you, if you're going to be out for long. - Buy a cradle charger and a car charger. Charge your iTravl frequently. - Avoid power-hungry usage patterns if you won't be able to charge for a while.
Charge the battery for 6 to 8 hours before first usage of the device. 5 hours should give you a full charge. Additional charging won't add any runtime. A couple hours over won't hurt, but if you get to 5 you are done. Caution: Do not charge Li-Ion (or Li-Polymer) batteries longer than 24 hours. Think in terms of "sip" not "drown."
Do not charge the device "until the charging light goes out." The circuitry required to accurately determine battery condition would not fit into the case of any pocket device. In fact, not even 1/4 of the required circuitry would fit into any pocket device. The key is the amount of time under charge while using the recommended AC Adapter that comes with the device.
