The battery life is short (depletes quickly) even when the Walkman player is fully charged.

    Why does my Walkman battery drain?

    The Walkman battery consumption depends on a number of factors:

    1. Standby mode: Battery life will be shorter if the player is in standby mode for a long time, as standby mode also consumes a limited amount of energy. 
    2. Applications: If you run multiple applications, battery consumption will also increase and usage time will be shortened. 
    3. Usage conditions: for example, certain settings (screen brightness) or temperature conditions (cold temperature environments shorten battery life) influence battery consumption.
