    Hi everyone,

    Last week I ordered myself a 3.5mm mini capsule-like microphone that is compatible with both iPhone 3G and iPod Nano.

    I have designated my iPod Nano 4G to become a lecture recorder since I am not using it to listen to songs (or just a backup in case my iPhone battery dies) and today I used it for the first time.

    What was surprising, was that before use the Nano was fully charged (left overnight) and when I finished recording today (total of 3 hours), I noticed that there was less than 10% battery life left.

    I have Sound Check set off, as well as left screen brightness settings set to low and the light set to go off after 2 seconds.

    Does anyone else have any figures for how long the battery lasts for those that also record using the Voice Memo feature? I find it surprising it just lasted around 3 hours... Or do I have a bad lemon somewhere? (mic or battery?)

    Any help would be great,
