Summary: I've had my JB Recorder20 for almost 2 years now. I gave my gf one for christmas last year. I liked it very much at first. I used it mostly during long-distance drives (400 - 1000 mile stints); having several hours of playback capability is essential. With the original *lame* NiMH, it would go 8 to 10 hours on a full charge, not bad, but then required an overnight recharge.
