i notice the battery lasted around 3 hours with my itrip/ipod yesterday, but i don't think it is fully charged cause i had it plugged into the firewire bus for only a couple of hours, moving it back and forth in winter, i would expect the battery to last shorter, perhaps?
s, 4 hours is about right, thanks!
Just had some friends over this evening, passing around the iPod broadcasting to the stereo with the iTrip, and made the observation that battery life is close to half compared to regular headphone use. Perhaps a bit better than half, say 4.5 hrs. Similar level of flipping around. Pretty consistent, too. 4/4 that the iPod died early in the evening doing this. Comparatively, I take the bus fairly often for a 6+ hr journey and always have at least 1 bar of battery left after listening though my headphones for the whole trip. Not complaining, though. Seems pretty good.
