CyQve MP3 Deluxe - Page 4
As we said earlier, CyQve included two re-chargeable batteries. According to the specifications, the batteries can last for 12-15h continuous Mp3 playback and for 7-8 hours for the CD-DA format. It is suggested for the first charge to leave the "Charge" switch on for 8hours. Afterwards you must turn the Charge switch off to prevent battery power consumption. Of course alkaline batteries can be used alternatively with similar operating performance.

For the test, we used WinLAME RC1 software to create a variety of MP3 files using all possible bit rates and encoding methods:
