Zoom_H1_Handy_Portable_Digital_Recorder

Forums are opening up with complaints about the new Zoom H1 having some serious battery drain issues. Just thought i'd post an article here to see what comments pour in. Supposedly there could be a bad batch of Zoom H1's floating around with problem capacitors that will drain brand new batteries to almost nothing just overnight. By habit I always recharge my Eneloop batteries and use a fresh set in all my gear before a shoot. So this is something i've never noticed. I'll have to grab a fresh pack of non-rechargeables to test this out myself on my units. I'm digging around to see what Samson or Zoom might have to say about this, and if it's true, what will be done for consumers. If you've got any more information, fill us in with your comments below.
