We try and try to keep ignoring MiniDisc. We really do. But it just keeps coming back to life right when we think it might be dead. This time around it's going to be a bit harder with these JVC XM-C37 players because the battery life is absolutely insane. With a full charge, you'll be able to get 305 hours out of the battery. That's 12.7 days of uninterrupted MiniDisc action. Don't have that much time and still want your tunes? A 20-minute charge nets you 15 hours of battery life. Looks like the only way MiniDisc can compete in an MP3-dominated market is to showcase its absolutely nutty battery life.
