The Eclipse 180 is a portable media player that stores up to 8 GB of music, movies, e-books or photos. The device uses a 3.7-volt lithium ion battery that is capable of running for approximately 8 hours on a single charge. The Eclipse 180 is built to begin charging as soon as it is plugged into a computer; however, many of the units were shipped with a defective USB charging cable. The makers of the units are offering a free replacement cable, as well as a temporary fix, so the device can still be charged.
