Maybe the subject could be misunderstanding ;) but my Archos 9 runs realy hot. I have no measurement devices and no software but after some work the left side (beside the battery) becomes realy hot. Is this normal on your A9s too?

I would like to use the USB port for flash memory (microSDHC with nano card reader) but a normal USB memory stick becomes very hot after some minutes. Well, I would say I could make a barbecue on it... :shock: Don't know how long the flash would survive this? :?

I find the A9 gets very hot (same place as you said) when i am using it and it is charging at the same time, its not to hot when the its not charging

I use a MicroSD and an adapter see link below, i have it constantly pluged as i use it for ready boost and have had no issues. The adapter is excellent as it hardly sticks out of the A9

This was my intention too. :)

What flash card you are using? Have you measured the speed?

You could use CrystalDiskMark like many others here: CrystalDiskMark 2.2.0p Installer Edition

I have made some benchs on my A9:

Kingston 8GB microSDHC Class 4 @ Sandisk mini cardreader
Seq: 16,40 / 9,93 (read/write)
512K: 17,55 / 1,78
4K: 3,12 / 0,017

Kingston 8GB microSDHC Class 4 @ Kingston mini cardreader
Seq: 17,73 / 10,05
512K: 17,47 / 1,64
4K: 3,19 / 0,017

SuperTalent 8GB Pico-C USB Memory Stick
Seq: 24,34 / 6,43
512K: 24,38 / 1,38
4K: 4,85 / 0,013

Sandisk Cruzer 4GB USB Memory Stick
Seq: 24,63 / 11,48
512K: 24,35 / 4,91
4K: 4,24 / 0,065

btw: After charging the battery and running CirstalDiskMark the same time Everest shows 89┬░C (192┬░F) for CPU and 48┬░C (117┬░F) for HDD. ^^

Hot days making hotter Archos 9...

Yesterday we had around 36┬░C out there and 28┬░C in the house. I had watched a video (flash stream) and so I got 98┬░C CPU and 56┬░C HDD. Would say this is hot! ^^

Does anybody know if the Archos 9 has an overheat protection?

Some tips to avoid overheating:
Don't use the A9 in bed, that will certainly cause overheating because it can't lose it's heat in bed.
Don't use the A9 while charging, that can mess up your battery and causes overheating, if you want to use it on the ac adapter, then discharge the battery and take it out of your device.
don't use it outside or near a window on a hot day.

These devices are designed to withstand all these conditions even if the manufacture would prefer the consumer to follow its recommendations. I don't see how you would confine this only to indoor use, that's what desktop pcs are for. Consider getting a wearable case that would insulate the heat and mitigate any transference of it to your skin.

I live in Hawaii and the ambient temperature is in mid-80Fs. The beach can be relatively cool in the shade because of the trade winds. My living room has the sun beating down on it from mid-afternoon on - upper 80Fs to low 90Fs in Aug, early Sep.

I've had my A9 for about two weeks. I'm more interested in experience than theory.

What temperature conditions have destroyed A9s?

My a9 user manual (european 1,2ghz version) shows this:
do not use or leave the a9 on soft surface such as bed or cushion wich could help the device build up heat.
do not use the a9 in hot/humid environments or near windows/outside on an hot/humid day.
