Battery

Battery:
"excellent but you have to take the battery out after every use as it will make your battery go dead, apart from that it is excellent, the headphones are cheap and nasty but who cares about that."
_
"Apparently a small batch of Zoom H1 units had a faulty capacitor, which was initiating the battery drain."
_
"I was very concerned about reviews (not necessarily on this site) complaining that the battery in the H1 would completely discharge in just a few days even with the unit turned off."
_
"Sure, it's made from flimsy plastic, the battery door rattles, the microsd cover feels like it wants to break every time you use it, and the buttons and switches are rubbish, but I was prepared to give the Zoom H1 a 4-star rating because the audio quality is fantastic for the price, it's light weight, and is supposed to get good battery life from a single AA battery."
_
"Unfortunately, for me, the battery drain issue makes the product completely useless."
_
"Its very user friendly and has a great battery life."
_
"excellent but you have to take the battery out after every use as it will make your battery go dead, apart from that it is excellent, the headphones are cheap and nasty but who cares about that."
_
"Gonna be doing a lot of work with this little fellow, came in great shape, no shipping damage, whipped in the battery and it fired right up so pretty happy here! "
_
"Recommend to have rechargeable batteries to save more money."
