PRS-600 battery life

The battery life on this is poor. Does anyone else have this problem or could it be a Friday-afternoon machine? My earlier model has a much longer battery life. Any tips?

The 600 is an older model and I wouldn't be surprised if the battery has deteriorated from age.

One thing to try is a factory reset. Note that this will delete all books currently on the device.

Seems likely. I had a PRS-600 for about a year and never noticed anything wrong with the battery life.

I've had one for a while now --- battery life was shorter, even when new than my PRS-505 --- but is still manageable. Just need to remember to put it in the charger on Saturday so it'll be ready for Mass on Sunday.
