    You'd think the rechargable battery'd have a life expectancy of longer than[about]4 months.

    I decided to take the battery out after it's done charging to stop it from overcharging[hopefully it'll help it to last longer].

    I've been taking the battery out after charging it and i'm still only getting around 80-90 minutes of use before the radio shuts off.[i wonder if I have a bad battery.....it seems to have a slight bulge in the middle too]

    I'll try a new battery(if that doesn't help that much i'll try a new dock after that....i've only used the dock for about 9 months)

    Let me rephrase my above statement- the dock connectors, after using for a good while, can cause the battery to not charge properly. Just my 2 cents worth!

    I ordered a new battery last night so hopefully that will solve the problem.

    I received the new battery today......it took about 3 hours to charge it[I hope that's enough time].
