Doesn't work cos of really terrible battery capacity

General Comments
Have been using a Sony Ericsson HBM-30 for about 5 months, but my unit just doesn't work. Sony claim a 10 hour battery life- nope. 10 hours not playing music with b.tooth disabled yes, but that is disingenuous. You need to put in fresh batteries every day- a new batt lasts about 30 minutes, and can manage about 10 minutes after a day's break. The battery itself is not exhausted, it would still work in a TV remote, but the unit requires a high power level (that means no rechargables) to operate. I have asked Sony Ericsson to comment, but they have thus far ignored me competely. The battery compartment is also fiddly- lord knows why they didn't make it a bit bigger with a rechargable cell that could be plugged in every nite with the phone, rather than this dog's dinner that would work great for about the duration of a review, but is no good for anyone using on a daily basis, who would like to listen to music and know when they're being called, but doesn't want their head fried by cellphone radiation. Avoid, perhaps get a PDA with bluetooth and appropriate connection software.
