Interesting. It's actually rather tricky finding any definitive ratings on battery life for PPCs. I guess so many factors are involved. I think the best strategy is replaceable batteries like Casio has, along with offering them in varying capacities, like the EG-800 has. That way ppl have at least the option.

Ideally I think most ppl would like to see a solid 8 hours of full tilt (screen on, sound going, input happening) power out of a battery. Not there yet, but that would be great.

I even saw somewhere that some guy actually hooked a solar panel up to his Ipaq! :P Pretty cool tho impractical.
