    How long can you listen to music before your battery is almost depleted?

    Some real time data

    Listening to music on pocket tunes through the adaptor hooked to some computer speakers. Phone is on, roaming ( don't get a sprint signal in this building)

    0800 battery at 98%
    1205 battery at 72%
    1305 battery at 68%
    1410 battery at 58%
    1510 battery at 50%
    1610 battery at 43%

    (BTW, I am using the built in Palm battery icon, not Z-launcher or one of the battery utilities, because there appears to be some variations)

    made no phone calls. BT off. About 10 minutes usage with screen on.

    will update through the day

    BTW- i really love pocket tunes. It works flawlessly when a call comes in. Last night, listening through the palmone stereo headset ( sounds great), call comes in, music fades to off, ringer heard at comfortable volume through the headset, answer call with button on headset, finish call, hang up, music ramps back and comes back on right where it stopped. Pretty cool.

    I listened to 30-40 minutes of music on my morning commute and only used 3%

    That was via RealPlayer, screen off, phone on but obviously no reception since I was on a subway...

    Also I think more battery is used up when you are roaming since the phone is scanning to find a Sprint signal. The battery life could be longer if you had reception.

    I highly suspect you are right. About once every 5 min or so, the screen comes on for a few seconds--I suspect that may be when it is checking for a Sprint network signal.

    This is great info. Seems like it could really be an MP3 player replacement!

    How about battery life when listening to streaming music with pTunes?

    Ooo! My first post.

    I spent 1.5 hours in the yard Sunday doing yard work and listening to my shoutcast radio station running from my house server to PTunes on my Treo. Used up about 20% of the battery from a full charge. Streaming seems to take much more battery power than listening to MP3s, probably because the phone is actually on, and operational.

    When I'm at work, I get no reception either, I just turn the phone off, and play tunes. I can go 2-3 days on a single charge like that.

    I love PocketTunes. It's made my Treo BETTER than an IPod, because an IPod can't play streaming tunes......
