hmm it looks like the battery is built in just like the ipods they most likley dont have a replacement i would return it and get a replacement at this point it should last atleast to the battery life stated. thats a really neat little toy tho how much does it hold.

its 4gb and it clearly states that the battery is replaceable
i have taken the back out and i can remove the battery but if u go to the site and search sansa e200 battery replacement it shows up at 19.99 but there is nowhere to purchase it
u see it works when it is plugged in but as soon as i unplug it it shuts off
the battery wont hold a spark

...Exactly.

Don't waste your time, and money buying a new battery. Just return it and get a replacement.

ok so the site i bought it from wont take it back and if i go through the company it could take "4 to 5 weeks" before they find an extra one. and if i can get a battery it would save much time on my part

ya but i dont see why you would waste money when you can just wait a few weeks and have it replaced for free.
