some educated guesses about the dr800
well nothing very important..
but reading here:
I think you understand that the battery lasts up to 24 hours of continuous reading and that could be replaceable..

I've never seen that before, had no idea iRex rebranded their products. I'm still trying to figure out why the "FX8" costs $1200. The picture shows a bunch of on-screen icons; it must have a lot more functionality than the 800 to warrant that price but as far as I can tell it doesn't list any additional features, other than it coming with current Jeppesen data and FXview software.
As far as battery life goes, it'll easily work for 24 consecutive hours. Charged mine 6 days ago and it still has a 50% charge.

It's interesting that the packaging matches the european and usa versions exactly... down to the accessories (protective sleeve vs protective gel sleeve, advanced stylus vs standard stylus).
It makes one think that instead of wasting money on a separate production line, the company just buys the retail versions of the dr800, load the chart software, add some logo stickers, and perhaps change the box. And there is no price difference between the two versions (both at $1,195.00).
If anyone is curious, IREX has had their readers rebranded for the aviation market since the Iliad days.
They have some training videos for their software on the DR1000 variant. It may give you some idea of the interface for the dr800 version:

As someone else mentioned, the price is related to the additional data that is loaded on them. Not sure about the FX10/FX8, but the eFlyBook included a subscription for chart updates, etc.
