Thank You for your continued support and contributions!
With 48 kHz your runtime from battery will be less for ~8%.
If you don't mind me asking, what causes the consumption to rise by 8% ? Assuming we're comparing two FLACs, one at 44.1k and one at 48k.
Would it be also possible to implement automatic switching based on source file sampling rate?

Assuming we're comparing two FLACs, one at 44.1k and one at 48k.As audio stream (compressed and decompressed) will be bigger for 8%.We have quite big overhead even on playing wav: http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php/topic,51184.0.htmlDAC also consume more power on bigger frequency.
I don't think the actual hit to battery life will be 8% though, since some power will be consumed no matter what (nand, Dram, etc).
It would be easy to battery bench if anyone is interested in trying. Just get a 44.1k album and a 48k album and run the battery bench plugin twice.
