I'm using the S315i rechargeable speaker with my iPod Touch. It works fine while plugged in, but when running on fully-charged battery the speaker powers down every 15 minutes. I have to turn it off and back on, and also go to my Touch to start my podcast or music playing again.
I am presuming that the speaker is the culprit, although I can't dismiss the possibility that the Touch is initiating the problem (I've only had it a few weeks). Any ideas how I can fix this?

Sorry it took awhile to post again...I seemed to have trouble logging in for a while, but it's ok now.
Thanks for what you could say. I called TS and they said that radio streaming "could confuse" the speakers...so I guess there's nothing wrong with the hardware. It works fine on AC power and it's ok on battery power as long as it's not streaming.
Anyway, thanks for the suggestion to contact Logitech. At least I know it's just the way it is.

I just got the S315i speaker and wish I found this support issue first. 90% of the time I listen to streaming audio so having it shut down when on batteries is really, really annoying.
Other than that, it's really a nice speaker dock. The sound quality is impressive for such a small form factor.

I can tell the same that the speaker works properly only if the power connector is plugged in. Running the speaker on battery there is an interruption between 5 and 30 minutes both on IPhone and IPod touch. Any ideas?

Can someone tell me this: Can the speaker charge if it is plugged into the wall with no iPod attached? When I plug it into the wall without my iPod, the green light glows continously. Does this mean that it is charging?
Thank you in advance.

I think the power-down behaviour is caused by a fault design in their sleep mode functionality. I don't think Logitech tested the speakerdock with other applications than the iPod application on the iPhone. The speakerdock probably polls something that is only set when listening to music through the iPod application.
If somebody can proof me otherwise, go ahead: does somebody has a different program than iPod on their iPhone/iPod touch that doesn't cause the powering down after 5~30 min?
To be clear: The problem doesn't occur when external power is connected, so test with battery only.
I urge Logitech to replace all S315i's (I don't think a firmware upgrade is possible on those speakerdocks). Please Logitech, don't come with a story like: 'we don't support thirdparty applications on the iPhone/iPod'.... I already mentioned this problem on my (Dutch) weblog: http://www.ruwebit.net/article/394
Your product is faulty, fix it.
