Quick battery question

How long does a bar last on the 505? I was at 2 bars yesterday and must have done more reading than I thought because on the way home today, I went down to one bar. I do have some library books to load so I am okay with processing those and plugging it in overnight, but I am 150 pages away from finishing the book I'm reading and would like to finish it before I tie up the reader for umpteen hours with a plug-in.

So, with one bar left, have I got enough battery to last me another 150 pages or so?

When desperate to finish a book, I have plugged the Reader into the wall socket to charge and finished reading.

The nice thing about a wall charger is you can read and charge at the same time.

If you don't have one, you may not even need to buy one - look around at your other electronics and see if you have any 5v chargers with a yellow barrel tip. That will work with the Sony.

The wall chargers are the same as the PSP chargers (PlayStationPortable) and can be bought for around $20. You might even be able to buy one which works both for wall outlets as well as cigarette lighter sockets in cars -- I bought one such charger, and it works just fine on the reader.
