Zoom Q4

Purchased January 2014.

You can't charge and record at the same time, and the batteries only last about two hours, so extra batteries are helpful. You can find Samsung SLB-10a style batteries fairly cheap.

Like the Zoom H1, when you replace the batteries, you often have to reset the date and time.

Records in about 3.2 GB chunks at a time, meaning you have to concatenate. File naming convention:

Noticed my original Zoom battery was stuck. Managed to pry it out with two screwdrivers. It was very pregnant.
