From a fully charged battery my radio will play for 45 minutes then the battery will completely die. Is it the battery or something wrong with the radio. Radio/battery is 5 months old.

You might have to swap it out with Pioneer. Either that or TSS might have some. I've seen them on eBay for about $15.

def sounds like the battery. I have used mine for 2 hours at the gym and had plenty of battery left

Update.

I tried an experiment. I played my mp3/wma's and the battery drained normally. So it's only when I'm playing live XM that the battery doesn't drain properly.

My XMP3i only holds a charge for about 90 minutes before it has to be recharged.(It' s a refurbished radio I bought from TSS a few months ago it's been that way since I bought it.....started at about 2 hours a charge)

I think the problem is the battery in the XMP3i gets overcharged and stops holding the charge for as long as it should[i've read elsewhere about people with the same problem with their XMP3i's].That too seems to be my problem.[I never had this problem with my Delphi MYFI radios]
