He said the card did fill up, though. That could be why the recording stopped, even though the battery was also getting low from the sound artifact that was on the third clip. If his camera is one that shoots at 10kbps data rate with 1.5GB per 20 min. clip, the card will fill up before the third 20 min. has expired. The size of his three files would pretty much tell if the card filled up before the battery was dead.

If the recharging time is longer than 40 - 50 minutes, then it's quite likely that this is the problem .
I think you could be right about that. It would be a good test to do.
