Listening to Digital Music: MP3 Players 79 Other features to look for include battery life, the amount of skip protection, the number and type of accessories provided, and the ability to store data and use the device as a backup hard disk. The Apple iPod, for example, offers up to 10 hours of battery life when used for continuous playback. In terms of skip protection, the iPod has up to 20 minutes of skip protection provided via a 32MB solid- state memory cache. This means that if you're walking or running, or the device is generally being bumped around, your music will play seamlessly because it's buffered in memory rather than being read in real time from the hard disk.
